Women who have diamonds, it can’t touch the joy and excitement of opening a kiln.

about lindsey schneider

Filmmaker by day and potter by night. Some of my favorite things are hearty food, feisty conversation, and a cup of strong coffee in the morning (best served in a warm, handmade mug).

I live in Red Hook, Brooklyn, and love the industrial texture of the neighborhood and the shapes found in the buildings. But mostly, the big sky above.

Making ceramics is all about small, repetitive movements, and I find the process soothing in its slowness and deliberateness. I draw a lot of inspiration in tramp art and Eastern European and African textiles, especially when patterns and textures combine in interesting, tactile ways.

about the pottery

Every piece starts as a ball of stoneware clay, whether it's a dark burgundy clay body or my favorite, a light brown speckled clay.

All glazes are food-, microwave-, and dishwasher-safe. Every piece can be put in an oven, but please do so when the oven is cool to prevent cracking. Unfortunately, my pieces are not safe for stovetop use.

There is a lot of unpredictability in the process of making pottery and always a surprise when you unload a kiln. I love this about the process and how it imprints on each item a little reminder that it's handmade. I hope you appreciate that, too.


wholesale

I am now accepting wholesale orders, with a minimum first order of $500 and a 50 percent non-refundable deposit. The balance is due upon delivery. Please send me a note and I can send along my wholesale catalog for available items and pricing.

 

custom orders

It would be my pleasure to make a custom piece or set for you. Please send me a note and we can discuss what you're thinking of. Custom orders generally get completed in about 4-6 weeks depending on what I'm working on at the moment, and a 50 percent deposit is required.
