Functional pottery is created for its usefulness. The ceramic object has function, form, and purpose. It is a utilitarian piece designed to be primarily useful for everyday use. Creating functional pottery means the potter is solving a problem, thinking of technical challenges, like the size of the pot, the position of the handle, or the volume of the vessel.
Finding a unique piece from our functional pottery collection is a creative way to add beauty to your everyday items in any room of the house. Ceramic bowls, mugs and incense burners are just a few of the intelligently crafted works offered by our collective of talented potters.
Our Collective includes functional pottery from several NJ artists, including; Freedom Pottery from Highlands, NJ and Watershed Pottery from Belmar, NJ.
