Emerson Creek Pottery artisans are continuing the American tradition of pottery making in a contemporary way. Our pottery is formed of clay made on-site. Each piece is hand made, hand painted and fired in a gas kiln. Each pattern is a series of carefully planned strokes. No templates or stencils are used - the patterns are practiced and committed to memory. Our artists paint the pattern again and again. Each piece is alike and yet different, like flowers in a field. We are currently featuring 14 different lines of ceramic pottery, including our beloved signature line - Field of Iris, a classic since 1977. All of our work is microwave and dishwasher safe, lead free and ovenproof.
