Chris Baskin Pottery
I'm glad you found me! I've been waiting for you!
Use the drop down menu at the top of the page, or buttons on the right to go to the Store if you want to buy something in a few clicks!
I love information so there's a lot here. There is a catalogue of pots, more than I can hold in my store! You can look at them as if you were in a library or museum, and inquire to me about them if you like.
There are images and information on urns of many types, and I'll talk with you about urns via zoom if you have an important decision to make and need some guidance or have questions.
Often I'll have class offerings listed or described here. And since I love learning, and teaching there is information about my favorite experiential, atmospheric firing processes.
I hope you'll send me a text or an email and tell me you'd like to join my e-mail newsletter, or make an appointment to come to buy pots for yourself or as a gift at my home studio in south east Portland on Liebe Street.
Welcome from wherever you are!
