How We Make It Happen
Our adventurous pottery comes to life in a place where the craggy Olympic Mountains give way to gentle terrain. Millbrook Clayworks is under the roof of a building that was, at one time, a house moved from nearby valley. Yes, it came with a bit of history. Now, we’re writing a new chapter by transforming it into a wonderful studio and gallery. As a visitor you’ll get a ‘behind the scenes’ look at how our artful pottery is made.
Doing what we love: Here’s a sampling of the steps we take in the studio to make finished pieces.
We’ve made art for as long as we can remember. It’s a passion. A way of life for us. As a small family art studio (we have two young daughters), we love creating beautiful pottery for your home.
Our Studio/Gallery building itself is rather small. We like the fact that the modest size lowers our carbon footprint. To offset our energy use we purchase Green Power to run all our electrical equipment, walk and bike to work most days and recycle clay scraps (as well as the ‘usual’ stuff). Quite simply, it’s our space to create pottery. Complete with all the equipment we need to make it happen. Hands on. Sometimes messy. The result: beautiful finished pieces.
Todd grew up on Bainbridge Island in Puget Sound. He then went on to study Liberal Arts at Western Washington University and abroad at the University of Amsterdam. The result: a profound appreciation of nature, art, and Washington State teaching certificate. Todd enjoys creating distinctive art pieces for the home and teaching clay art classes in local public schools.
Sarah comes from a family lineage of artisans, which originated in England. She studied at The Evergreen State College and further developed her artistic talents at the Pratt Fine Arts Center in Seattle. Imagery and experiences from her travels in Europe, Central and South America as well as the American West strongly influence her work.
We are dedicated to making beautiful and durable stoneware pottery for the home and garden through environmentally sustainable practices. At our studio we work hard to lower our carbon footprint. We run all our electrical equipment with 100% Green Power!
