Spiral Tide Pottery is for the lifelong beachcomber. 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.
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
All Spiral Tide Pottery work is hand constructed out of soft slabs of red, individually textured, stoneware 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 mindfulness and self-care.

About the Artist
Hello, my name is Avesha DeWolfe.
I’ve had my hands in clay since I was 10, it is a part of me now. As a life-long ocean lover, clay provides a way to pay homage and respect to my inspiration and the place that refuels me. Through form and surface treatment, my work reflects an enchantment with the ocean and rocky coastlines 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.
