Fall Changes ThingsNew Pincu Pottery Logo

Children are back at school, the weather is changing and there are changes happening at Pincu Pottery.  Perhaps you noticed my new logo… which I will be using as I find time to update my page, etc.  Thank you to Open Door Design Studio for great work!


I am taking a hiatus from teaching at Pincu Pottery.

Those of you with gift certificates are welcome to call or email and make an appointment, and I am happy to teach those classes already scheduled.

THANK YOU to all that came and made pots with me!!! I LOVE teaching and had the best time with you all. On days I was in a mood, you cheered me up. THANK YOU!

It is time to focus on making my pottery. Teaching and finishing everyone’s work, even with an assistant, has taken a toll on my pottery output and I want to get back to that focus. I may begin teaching again next summer, or may, if the feeling strikes, schedule a few special group classes in the winter.

I will continue to teach at the local Southwestern Community College and encourage those in town for a month or longer to look into the clay classes there. It is a FABULOUS resource!


I will be showing and selling my work in several places this fall and winter (GET READY FOR THE HOLIDAYS!)
