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.
