After many years of studying and learning hand building techniques in clay, Georgie Handbuilt Pottery began as a wholesale pottery business nearly 20 years ago, selling to Garden Centers,Gift Shops, and Galleries in the Midwest, East, and Southeast. As that business continues and has grown to include Interior Design and Decorating Firms as well as Home Furnishings Stores , I have decided to also offer my work online in this retail setting. My studio is located near the heart of downtown South Bend Indiana at the edge of a historical neighborhood bordered by the St.Joseph river and a mile from the University of Notre Dame. Throughout the years I have developed my pottery line and a beautiful garden,almost at the same time. Tours and visits to the studio and garden are held throughout the growing season.
With each piece of my pottery comes a visit from the past. I use primitive hand building techniques, stretching the clay\'s limits while allowing every piece to take on its own unique characteristics. My work is influenced by my fascination with ancient civilizations, past lives, lost cultures, and my passion for gardening. I believe my work is a result of positive thinking. I am grateful for the opportunity to share my inspired creations with you. Each piece is handcrafted and signed:Georgie
