FUNCTION AND BEAUTY BY DESIGN
Once upon a time we owned a goat dairy and cheese company in Texas. After years of raising goats we sold the farm and built a cow cheese company. Looking for someone to make ceramic cheese plates for our cheese shop we became frustrated finding nobody willing. We purchased a used wheel and kiln and taught ourselves how to make pottery on the wheel. What started off as a way to solve a problem became an obsession and Burnt Offerings Pottery was born. As the desire to create functional pottery grew we both decided it was time for a change. We sold the cheese company and moved to the mountains of southwest New Mexico. We now live just outside of Silver City New Mexico where we craft functional pottery and pursue a healthy lifestyle enjoying the beauty and activities the Mountains have to offer.
Burnt Offerings Pottery was born out of desire to create daily use ceramics for the home that not only serve a function but bring beauty into your life. Each piece is crafted by hand with attention to form and function. The colors we choose reflect the beauty of the mountains we are blessed to call home. As pottery is an art form that encourages constant growth, learning, and challenge, we strive to always improve our craft, and develop our skills.
