erinjanowMy work is fully functional, high-fired stoneware pottery. It’s made to be used on a daily basis and is both microwave and dishwasher safe.

I do what I do because I love to make pots! I like the process of taking the raw clay through all of the steps that turn it into functional pieces. I enjoy cooking myself and love the idea of other people using my creations in their kitchens.

Lately, I have been putting a lot of time and energy into making custom place settings. This has been a major focus of mine, and I hope to expand on it in the upcoming months.

Making pottery that is completely user friendly is a big influence in my work.

I have a 1-year-old baby boy named Herschel. It is definitely a juggling act to both find time to get work done in the studio and raise a very active baby boy. My most creative time is simply when he is napping!

I took a handful of pottery classes while in college at Indiana University. When I made the move to Asheville, in the fall of 2001, I went to work full-time for Rob and Beth Mangum in Weaverville. That was the best move I made, as far as developing my skills as a potter. Working for them for the seven years I was there was extremely helpful in getting my own pottery business started.

I very much admire the work of Adelaide Alsop Robineau. Her pots are simply beautiful and elegant.   (Excerpt taken from Asheville Citizen-Times)
