Eel River Pottery

 

Eel River Pottery is my pottery studio and little slice of heaven. Situated on the Eel River in Plymouth, Massachusetts where the scenery is constantly changing.

I make functional pottery with colors drawn from nature, although i do like to mix in some sculptural pieces and more colorful work. Most of my work is thrown on the potters wheel, but I also do a large amount of hand building as well. I like to use the repetitive patterns found in the beach sand and the colors of the water and sky.

A lot of my work uses impressions from old linen, most of which belonged to my mother, although I am happy to use anyone’s mothers, grandmothers, aunt…. This technique makes a permanent piece of artwork from a family heirloom without sacrificing the original piece.

My boards are made at my cabinet shop in the Sandpaper Factory in Rockland, Mass. I make them from old furniture and mix in pieces from cabinet jobs I do. They are transformed into a new life as a serving/cutting board. A lot of my pottery is made to accompany the charcuterie boards as condiment bowls and serving spoons.

That’s pretty much my story. Thanks for stopping by, Jak Alabiso
