Handcrafted pottery by Leo and Karin Villaroman
It was a partnership of two individuals from both ends of the world that
created this pottery. In September of 1992 in a small apartment
kitchen in Atlanta a potter's studio was born. The wheel was inside the
bedroom. Karin would wake up early to pick leaves from the garden from
which Leo would make moulds. The base of the pots are rolled on a basket
texture, then shapes are formed and thrown on the wheel. The pieces are all
decorated with leaves or shells and sea life. All the pottery is oven, dishwasher and food
What a wonderful addition to our pottery collection. And with so many folks with beach houses we KNOW it is going to be a big hit.
In this blog I give you a behind the scenes look at our gallery, our artists, our travels, new work we're creating in our own studio, a little politiking, what's going on in our town, and sometimes funny things we encounter. I hope you'll come back often!
