I’m a potter living in Corvallis, Oregon with two dogs and supportive husband. Spencer Work in Clay is the all-purpose name I chose for my business because what I like to do most in life is play in clay. Sometimes this means pots for use, sometimes sculpture for the garden, sometimes work that just needs to be made to continue my dialog with the myself.
All work is handbuilt from slabs or pinch-coiled into shape and high-fired for durability and use.
Since 1987 I’ve been showing and selling work at trade shows, art fairs, wholesale markets, galleries and the occasional studio sale. Many pieces have been donated for causes near and dear to my heart. If I don’t have to ship it I may donate to yours.
Many of the pieces you see here are available for sale at my Etsy Shop: NicePots.
