We were tipped off to Nancy Bauch's White Forest Pottery by a friend who said that walking into her studio was like walking into another world. We haven't been there, but her website and her pottery makes this seem very possible. These are special pieces that define the intersection of simplicity and beauty. This is what she says...
In addition to using natural elements, she actively strives to simulate the imperfection and impermanence of nature itself. Each hand-made piece reflects the philosophy of "wabi sabi" an aesthetic that honors the beauty of imperfection. Her work is a reflection to the variability that is nature, and just as no two snowflakes are alike, so too are each of her pieces unique in their beauty.
Most of the pieces are made of porcelain and range from bowls to cups to mugs to tiny vases to bells. Most are also white, though there is a bit of color in there on occasion. All pieces are priced and sold through the site.
