Pam Cummings Pottery
Harrisburg, PA

I make functional pottery for food and flowers in my woodland studio near the Susquehanna River. Thoughtfully executed forms are enhanced with subtle glazes and sparse brushwork. Whether thrown or slab, I make each piece in my one-person studio, start to finish.

I formulate my glazes from recipes developed over 30 years of making, and my dark clay body lends a quiet depth to my pieces. I am intrigued and inspired by Japanese pottery’s clean, intentional forms. Images from my 20-year practice of Chinese brush painting become motifs on my pottery.

I’ve been making my living as a full-time studio potter, a life full of creativity and discovery.
