New JW Art Pottery Studio Open in Portland

After many months of work, the new JW Art Pottery studio is open in Portland, Oregon.


The studio was converted from a 420-square foot garage next to my house. Like the house, it was built in 1923. The white-washed barn wood and windows are original to the structure. Incredibly, most of the glass panes are original — the glass has a lovely wavy texture. The concrete floor is acid-stained and the color is called “Potter’s Wheel.”


There is a view of the garden from the window above my sculpting table.

Final California Firing

I was able to find time to fire three new organic vases before moving to my new studio in Portland.
