Nan Rothwell is a talented local potter who has decades of experience making pottery.
“My pots are made to be used—to enhance the rituals of preparing and eating food; to hold flowers; to light a corner for reading. After half a century of making pots, the alchemy of transforming soft clay into finished pots continues to delight and inspire me. I first learned to pot in England and can trace my design sense to the influence of my teachers there. I also draw inspiration from early American utilitarian ware. I love balancing the demands of form and function. I make sturdy, high-fired stoneware, with tested food-safe glazes. Everything is designed for modern kitchens - suitable for microwaves, ovens and dishwashers."
