A North Shore native, Cynthia has always been drawn to the ocean and its vastly changing colors. Her wheel-thrown and hand-built, high-fire stoneware pottery is glazed in a range of blues, greens, purples, and whites. Inspired by nature, Cynthia integrates shells, stones, and coral as well as environmental motifs into her work. Her new collection includes vases, mugs, berry bowls, ornaments, lamps, bowls, platters, and pitchers. Local beach glass is melted into some of the glazed pieces to create a spectacular depth of color. Each piece is unique and all are oven, dishwasher and microwave safe with non-toxic glazes. Special orders are welcomed.


Cynthia Curtis is a full-time potter and teacher and holds a B.S. in Education. She began making pots in 1976 and founded Cynthia Curtis Pottery in 1995.
