Lindsey creates fine, functional pottery and sculpture elegantly crafted to enhance your daily life.

She uses a variety of techniques to develop intriguing surfaces, including crystalline glazes. As an avid horsewoman, she also makes raku-fired sculptures that capture the movement and beauty of the horse. .



From your daily coffee mug to a customized dinner set, Lindsey enjoys creating pieces to enhance your daily life. Made from high quality stoneware, the pieces are durable for daily use and are microwave and dishwasher safe.

Raku Sculpture

Lindsey's raku horse sculptures are handcrafted to capture the movement, strength and beauty of horses. Each one is made individually and raku fired one at a time giving each horse its own unique character.



If you're looking for a statement piece in your home, Lindsey's crystalline glazed porcelain is a perfect solution.  

Bringing clay to life.

All of Lindsey's functional pottery is lead-free dinnerware, microwave and dishwasher safe. Some of the stoneware and high-fire porcelain pieces can also be used as baking dishes, able to go directly into the oven. The clay bodies include stoneware and porcelain. The glazes cover the color spectrum to brighten the tablescape or your morning coffee.

Each piece is hand-made on the potter's wheel where no two are produced exactly alike. After drying to the "bone dry" state where the clay is allowed to slowly air dry, the pieces are bisque fired in an electric kiln. The pieces are the n glazed using a selection of specially formulated glazes- waiting one day between adding layers to the glazes. Once the pieces dry again, they are glaze fired and two days later a finished piece emerges from the kiln. From beginning to end, it generally takes two weeks for a piece to be completed no matter how big or small.

From the fire, a horse is born.

The horses began in 2006 while studying Animal Science at the University of Vermont. At that time, Lindsey had already decided to pursue further education in clay, but was continuing to finish her science degree. During her final year, she created an independent study to explore animals in art and it was in this exploration that the horses were born. Over the years, the animals have evolved from horses to elephants, giraffes, zebras, frog and more. In addition to the animal sculpture, she also makes vases to hold tillandsia (more commonly known as an airplant). To see a gallery of horses, please visit this page.

A brief history of raku


Raku is a form of Japanese pottery characterized by low firing temperature and the removal of pieces from the kiln while glowing hot. It is considered the traditional method for creating bowls for the Japanese tea ceremony which are made from earthenware clay, each with a unique shape and style. In the traditional process, the pot is removed from the hot kiln (around 1850 degrees F) and put directly into water or allowed to cool in the open air. Raku techniques have been adopted and modified by contemporary potters worldwide.

The western tradition of raku uses the addition of a reduction chamber once the pieces are removed from the kiln. Typically, pieces are removed from the hot kiln and placed in a can filled combustible material (leaves, sawdust, newspaper, etc.) to provide a reducing atmosphere for the glaze and the stain the exposed clay body surface with carbon.

The use of a reduction chamber was introduced by the American potter Paul Soldner in the 1960's to compensate for the difference in atmosphere between Japanese wood-fired raku kilns and gas-fired American kilns. Once the pieces are placed in the reduction chamber, the combustible material ignites and then a lid covers the can to remove the oxygen, extinguishing the flames. It is during this phase where all of the magic happens and the brilliant colors form as the flames remove oxygen from the glaze and change its chemical composition.

Although almost any low-fire glaze can be used in a raku firing, potters often use specially formulas that have high copper contents (for a rainbow of colors) or glazes that crackle and trap carbon in the glaze as they cool. Crackle glazes have black/grey lines in the surface to give a cracked appearance although the piece is not broken.

The glaze firing times for raku are short,  and hour or two as opposed for 16+ hours for high temperature firings. This is due to several factors: raku glazes mature at much lower temperatures, kiln temperatures can be raised rapidly and the kiln is loaded and unloaded while hot and can be kept warm between firings. Because of the rapid temperature changes, the clay used must be able to withstand significant thermal stress. The usual way to combat thermal shot is to incorporate a high percentage of quartz, grog or kyanite into the clay before the piece is formed. These are used to increase strength and to reduce thermal expansion, which decreases the frequency of a piece cracking.

The process is known for its unpredictability, particularly when the reduction is forced and pieces may crack or even explode due to thermal shock. When all of the parts of the parts of the process come together, the result is a brilliant surface with a completely unique pattern that can never be repeated.


Bringing horses to life

Lindsey lovingly hand-sculpts each horse from a custom made raku clay. Nails, bolts or clay pegs reinforce the legs, giving them strength and durability during sculpting and firing. With more than 25 years of horsemanship education and experience, Lindsey's understanding of equine anatomy and her love of the moving horse inform and inspire her creations. Raku is known for its unpredictability, resulting in a variety of colors and patterns that complement the characteristics of horses. As the fire surrounds each piece, it leaves a unique mark changing the color of the glaze and makes each piece a unique creation.

The horses began in 2006 while studying Animal Science at the University of Vermont. At that time, Lindsey had already decided to pursue further education in clay, but was continuing to finish her science degree. During her final year, she created an independent study to explore animals in art and it was in this exploration that the horses were born. Over 1,000 different horses have been made over the past ten years with a variety of sizes, positions and colors. To see a current selection of horses for sale, please visit our Etsy store.

Bringing zinc to life


Crystalline glazes are different from any other glaze. Zinc crystals are actually grown on the piece during the firing & cooling process. A special glaze formula, application and firing schedule all combine in a specific combination in order to grow the crystals. This glaze is very fluid and each piece has a custom made catch basin attached to the bottom to catch the glaze as it melts. After the firing, the catch basin is cut off and the piece finely sanded to give it a smooth finish. Every element of the process must be executed perfectly in order to create just one of the magnificent finished pieces.
