Cattle Track Pottery is a working studio located in the Historic Cattle Track Arts Compound. The pottery studio shares the site with painters, photographers, graphic designers, print makers, a luthier and a blacksmith. Cattle Track visitors are in for a treat as they step back in time to a historic array of architecture and artifacts.
In 2016, Andaz Scottsdale Resort and Bungalows partnered with the Cattle Track Arts Compound.
Andaz uses my mugs, plates, platters, and bowls in their Weft and Warp restaurant. My pottery can be purchased in their gift shop. Tour groups from Andaz visit the Cattle Track compound on a regular basis.
I am a retired teacher and tennis professional, but have always been interested in ceramics. Thirty years ago, I began studying the art of ceramics, taking classes, workshops, and traveling throughout the U.S., Europe, China, and Northern Africa to develop more of an understanding and appreciation of the rich heritage of clay art.
I moved into my studio at Cattle Track Arts Compound almost twenty years ago. For the first seven years, my pottery time was limited to weekends and evenings. I have since been immersed full-time in clay art and loving it.
Most of my work is on the wheel and functional in use, but I do some hand-building and altering for a fun variety. The pieces are high-fired stoneware and are both dishwasher and microwave safe.
Most of my vessels are wheel thrown and created for kitchen and dining use; mugs, plates, teapots, casseroles, large platters, bowls, wine goblets, utensil containers, etc.
The pieces are high-fired stoneware and are dishwasher, oven, and microwave safe.
These little pots are a result of demonstrating "how I make pots" to my 1st grade students (20 years as a 1st grade teacher.) One child called them a "Who Pot" after Dr. Seuss's Horton Hears a Who. He said the rim resembled an elephant's ear. I have made hundreds of these little pots.
... and Vintage Trailer Pottery.
These pieces travel well and provide a fun way to display your love for little trailers. Special orders are welcome!
Please email me with your detailed request.
Please allow for 3 - 4 weeks for orders. The clay process takes much time from start to finish. I also fire only when the kiln is full. I have three electric kilns of different capacities, and fire in a gas kiln on another site.
CattleTrack Pottery is a working studio. I may be in the glaze room, outside with the kilns, or out on the road with my teardrop trailer. Your visit is important, so please call to make sure the doors are open.
