Catalog

Pomegranate Pottery is available in a variety of styles – each speaking uniquely.   Terra cotta clay, decorated with an underglaze palette of spontaneous color, is wheel thrown and fired in an electric kiln and all pieces are 100% food safe, dishwasher safe, and microwaveable.   Please call me directly or email me with your feedback or inquiry/order; this website and my studio are the only places where my pottery may be purchased.  I do not wholesale.  

You will receive a pot that is inspired and created especially for you, direct from the artist.  While I am happy to produce any piece that calls out to you from the following catalogue, please remember that each pot is one of a kind with its own unique spirit.  It is this collaboration with the customer that truly inspires and brings the greatest sense of fulfillment to the artist.

Forms: Bowls, cups, mugs, plates in varying sizes, goblets, pitchers, dinnerware, wall pieces, vases, liturgical & communion pieces, custom wedding bowls/baby bowls and platters.  *If it is your preference, I am always happy to create any piece for you without the addition of verse.

I look forward to chatting with you re your interests.  Prices are not quoted within this site; please call for information on specific pieces.  I gladly ship anywhere in the USA.   Click here for How to order.

Thank YOU!

Rainbow/JOY  

This design is about a splash of JOY that sings and dances and celebrates life.  These forms usually have an accompanying verse that is about JOY!   The JOY mugs are a popular item and usually are in stock

Frequently used verses:   *JOY cometh in the morning! * Enter into the JOY! * Awake my soul and sing! * I’ve got the JOY, JOY, JOY, JOY down in my heart! * The JOY of the Lord is my strength! * You shall go out with JOY and be lead forth in peace! * Arise, SHINE!

White on White

Within this category you will see both a leaf/vine motif (sgraffito technique) as well as pieces simply decorated with pencil engraved scripture.  You will also find whimsical character drawings that echo childs’ play and a simple delight in faith. 

Frequently used verses:  Make a joyful noise unto the Lord! * Sing and make music on your heart! * Praise Him sun and moon and all ye shining stars! * Consider the Lilies of the field and how they grow.

African figures

With accompanying Shona language of Zimbabwe, the bright patterning and color of these women represent the joy of a culture familiar to me as a child.  These women and children were originally designed to create a personal connection to my past and provide a means of support for AIDS relief in Zimbabwe.  20% of these proceeds are returned to an AIDS orphanage in Zimbabwe.

Classic pastel 

This is the original design of Pomegranate Clay Studio ~ softly melting swirls of lavender, aqua and buttery yellow, surrounded by a white rim and any chosen accompanying scripture.  This may be offset with a white leaf/vine circle in the middle, or a preference for only the blues and lavender hues.

 Within this category you will also see a dragonfly or two: a serene dragonfly sketched lightly through the lavender and aqua/blue colors with a hint of white – most popular in mugs and pitchers.  

Accompanying verse:  *Be still and know that I am God * He leadeth me beside still waters, he restoreth my soul.

How to order:

Please keep in mind that each and every pot is somewhat unique; as I sit and throw new pots, the inventory changes and while I do recreate many, there is always a wide variety of new creativity on the palette.  I am inviting you to select the basic form or item you would like, pick the pattern that most delights you from the catalogue listing, and then give me a call or write a short email and I will work with you until we together create your vision

For example…   a pastor would like a chalice/paten set..     I can offer size/shape differentials according to what is shown in the catalogue, and then suggest different patterns and how they work with the form.    I can also suggest scriptures or verse that will suit and match your creation.   Do you have a very specific occasion that needs a very specific customized gift?   Allow me to guide you and blend your desires with my hand on the wheel and spirit in the brush.      Call me or email me a short note.    I am delighted to work with you!

 Information you will need to give me:

  • Reference item in the catalogue that inspired your vision

  • Form or function of item selected

  • Approximate size ~  small, med, large

  • Pattern/Color of choice   (You may combine patterns as seen in catalogue)

  • Scripture or verse:  Yes/No    You may select your own or I am happy to guide you according to the function or intention of the piece.

  • Desired date: I usually need a minimum of three weeks, but can work with you.
