Chehalem Mountain Pottery is nestled among towering Douglas
Big Leaf Maples on the verdant north slope of Chehalem Mountain, just a
few miles west of Portland, Oregon.
We are studio potters, hand-crafting functional and
work from stoneware. Although our lives outside of the studio can be
hectic, our time spend working in clay offers needed balance while
nourishment for our creativity. The tensions of the day can just melt
as soon as we get our hands in clay. As we work to bring our
life a lot of us goes into each piece.
You can see Debra's touch in the
patterns she incises in her lanterns and the manic
attention to detail
embodied in Larry's Acme Boilerworks pieces.
Welcome to Chehalem Mountain Pottery!
