People Talk About Us

when they say hand crafted they mean it. Every piece is unique. Each one is a little different than the other. I highly recommend

I love your work! So pretty! Solid and functional. Thank you!

Just wanted to send a huge thank you to your company. We stumbled across your mugs when we visited the gift center at Rocky Mountain National Park.  I fell in love with the 4 pack of mugs with spoons.  We are constantly looking for original gifts from Colorado to give to our friends.  Love your pottery and also giving my husband ideas for presents for me!
Looking forward to doing business with you.
Thank you so much for your beautiful pottery.
Take care,
Tina A

We love these mugs. We added to a mug we have had for years, it lasts through multiple dishwashing and microwaving. The handle is shaped just right. We added Bison Stampede, Mountain Scene, Elk wrap and Moose wrap. They are so perfect I had to find a place to hang and display them. I could not bring myself to hide them in the cabinet! Great shipping service too!

I found one of your ash mugs in a thrift store and love it so much. I has become my favorite. So I had to look you up on line (address glazed into bottom of mug) to tell you that being a clay worker myself and knowing how hard it is to get everything right, that  I love everything about this mug. The feel, the shape, the glaze, the functionality the durability.  I am keeping you in mind for future shopping for family gifts.

I just wanted to write and say that I received the mug I ordered and it was perfect and I love it! Thank you so much!

These folks have amazing talent!

Thank you so much! We enjoyed and will enjoy our mugs/collectibles for years to come! Great customer service!

Hi! I just received my order and everything is wonderful. Fantastic packing job, too.
I will be ordering more as soon as I can. Thank you so much!

I received my beautiful canister set today and I love it! The artistry is wonderful, the glaze pattern beautiful & they are so functional. I will definitely be buying more from this site !
