The words “functional” and “pottery” go hand in hand. Pottery may be the oldest of the decorative arts, but it began as the creation of functional objects used in everyday life such as vessels, plates and bowls. The history of pottery dates back to the Neolithic period while glazed stoneware was first created in China as early as the 15th century BCE.
Our functional pottery raises the idea of functional to a whole new level with wonderful glazes and designs that make everyday objects works of art. We’ve brought you creations from a variety of artists from across the country whose work covers the spectrum of “functional art”.
