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 those moments add 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
All Spiral Tide Pottery work is hand constructed out of soft slabs of red, individually textured, mid-range 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 which calls out to be held and offers space for mindful moments of self-care. Those moments add up to a life well-lived.

About the Artist
Hello, my name is Avesha DeWolfe.
As a die-hard ocean lover, clay provides me a way to pay homage and respect to the source of my inspiration and the place that refuels me. I’ve had my hands in clay since I was 10, it is a part of me now. Through form and surface treatment, my work reflects a life-long enchantment with the ocean and rocky beaches of Maine where I grew up. Here in Scotland, where I live now, the enchantment continues. My work brings together this deep love for the sea and a sense of whimsy into a piece of artwork for your hands.
