Steve Gordon teaching pottery

Hey there, folks! I’m Steve Gordon, your friendly neighborhood pottery teacher, and let me tell you, there’s something truly magical about creating your very own handmade pottery. We start with a simple lump of clay, and together, we mold it into something extraordinary. Each piece is like a little piece of your heart, shaped by your hands.

When you run your fingers over the curves and textures of your own handmade pottery, it’s like feeling the essence of the artist you are at the moment you created it.

If you’re like most of my pottery students, your heart and soul becomes part of every piece you make and those little imperfections? Well, they’re what make each creation uniquely special. It’s like your fingerprint – no two are exactly alike!

Now, using your handmade mug or plate becomes more than just a daily routine; it turns into a mindful, almost meditative experience. You start appreciating the craftsmanship and the artistry with every sip of coffee or bite of food. It’s like a daily reminder to slow down and savor the moment.

I love the versatility of handmade pottery. Whether you’re into rustic vibes, a minimalist look, or a mix of everything, there’s a pottery piece for you. The variety of forms, glazes, and techniques means you can find something that perfectly matches your personality.

When you first begin your pottery journey, you won’t be a master artist but, the early pieces you create can easily become your favorites because they become like a snapshot of your abilities.

And let’s talk about the relationship you’ll build with your pottery over time. The shared meals, the morning rituals – it becomes a part of your story. The more you use it, the more character it gains, like a good friend aging with grace.

When you own a piece of your own handmade pottery, you’re not just getting an object; you’re getting a piece of your passion and dedication. Plus, you’re supporting the wonderful world of craft and becoming a part of the bigger narrative. It’s like we’re all connected through the clay and glaze, creating something truly special together.

So, embrace the magic of your own handmade pottery. Let’s turn the ordinary into the extraordinary and add a touch of beauty and meaning to your daily life. I’m here to guide you through this incredible journey, and I can’t wait to see the unique handmade cups, bowls, plates, pots and other ceramic pieces you make.
