Visit the one of the country's most prolific producer of woodfired pots for everyday use, producing high quality, lamps, planters, plates, mugs and bowls since 1974. 

In 1972, when Todd Piker was 20, he became passionate about the mysterious magic of the potter's wheel and about making beautiful, affordable pots for people to use. Today he sees a kiln load of his wood-fired pots and feels great pride in accomplishment. The potter's challenge is to use nature's palette - air, earth, water and fire - to create settings for domestic treasures, whether cooked, gathered or arranged. One well-designed pot made over and over, until its production becomes instinctive, will be a good pot. Good pots made by production potters now unknown, sold and used by other forgotten people, are now the most beautiful pots of antiquity, treasured by museums. Thus their pots enter into cycles of art and commerce, of time and value. Some of their customers, knowing as much, have become "collectors." Become a collector yourself.
