“I make functional ceramics with a clean modern feel. My mix & match collection is made with wheel thrown and soft slab pieces that I decorate with hand-carved patterns or gold luster details. Much of what I make spins out from my love of Danish Modern and Shaker designs where simplicity, utility and honesty are among the guiding principles in the work. My wares are beautiful to display but also durably designed for daily use.”
All of Gretchen’s pieces are handmade out of a beautiful dark brown stoneware clay and glazed in glossy white. Her pots are decorated with a variety of hand carved patterns that emerge after the glaze firing. Gretchen makes all of her work in her downtown Raleigh studio and teaches pottery at the NCSU Crafts Center.
