About

Spiral Tide Pottery is for the lifelong beachcomber. It’s for the person who brings shells and pretty rocks home to remember a special beach vacation when they live far away from the coast. It’s for the person who stops in their tracks to smell the tide come in, who strives to find the perfect shells and who thinks seagulls are adorable. 

Spiral Tide Pottery is for you.  My mission for Spiral Tide Pottery is to make high-quality, ocean-inspired wares that encourage you to slow down and take a moment for yourself. Every moment you sit down to sip a cup of coffee or enjoy a meal from a piece of handmade pottery enriches your day and adds up to a life well-lived.

 

“I love my bowls! The weight and thickness allows me to slob out in front of the Telly without burning my legs with a bowl of hot food. And the little feet means I can put it on my coffee table without getting a heat ring!” (Patricia)

 

About the Work

Wave Ware Nesting Bowls

All Spiral Tide Pottery work is hand constructed out of soft slabs of red, earthenware clay.  Building pots this way requires mindfulness and an active slowing down of the mind in order to be able to examine every angle, curve, foot and rim.  Nothing in the process of making a pot is taken for granted, every element of every piece is a considered choice. That consideration creates pottery that calls out to be held and offers space for mindful moments of self-care. 

If you’d like to see more about how the pots are made, visit this blog post  or this one where I describe the process in detail, with photos!

About the Artist

Hello, my name is Avesha DeWolfe.

I am a lifelong beachcomber and use the shells I find to texture my work.
The process of rolling and texturing a slab of clay is meditative for me;
turning that slab on it’s edge and building with it is endlessly challenging,
fascinating and thrilling all at once. My work brings together this
excitement, a deep love for the sea and a sense of whimsy into a piece of
artwork for your hands.
