POTS WITH PURPOSE

our products are meticulously considered,

our forms and glazes made intentionally by hand.

how we met

(2013) We both started work the same week at the Rookwood Pottery Company in Cincinnati.  A shared interest in pottery and food was what drove our initial friendship.  The first time we hung out we had a blindfolded throwing competition followed by a meal made from scratch.  We both still work our full-time day jobs together; Breakfront is our ongoing collaboration.
