Welcome to Twin Moons Pottery Summer 2018
Summer has been slow showing up this year in western Maryland. Dreary, cool, rainy days have lingered on well into June this year.
Finally the bright fire ball in the sky has appeared, and I have been able to be in the studio teaching students and creating many new pieces of ceramic art. I am always my happiest when I am being creative. I have several events coming up, and I hope to see you at them. Make sure to mark the dates on your calendars so you will not miss them!!!

2015 was the year of "Howlers and Growlers"here in the studio... Just what is a howler or growler??? They are jugs or bottles created to carry artisan beer, of course I also envision cider, sangria, or ice tea in them too. A howler holds approx. 32 oz and a growler holds approx. 64 oz. I have created many of them, some with wide growler flip lids, some with smaller flip top lids, and even some with cork stoppers. Each jug is uniquely sculptured. I have been sculpting the faces that so fascinate me onto the jugs. I've used a dark clay that has been left "bare naked" and put glaze on the insides and parts of the outside. They will be showing up at festivals and gallery shows in the near future. We have many creations available at our studio for your gift giving needs. Give us a call and we can arrange a time for your shopping.

Remember Twin Moons Pottery for all your gift giving needs. My pottery is made from Stoneware, and Porcelain clay. Pottery that is high fired to cone 10, (which is around 2350 degrees in a gas kiln) makes a very durable and stable product. It is oven, dishwasher and microwave proof, and we use lead free glazes that are made in my studio. I am proud to say that Twin Moons Pottery is Handmade in America... and that I am living the dream of being the owner of my own small business, where I create beautiful functional, and artistic pottery for your home and daily life rituals. Come by and see us, we would love for you to stop by.
