09 Orlando, Brian 4Orlando Pottery is comprised of the Orlando Family members, Brian, Kelly and Larson. All of our pieces are handmade; absolutely no molds are used. Some of our glazes have been handcrafted.

Brian throws on the wheel and occasionally hand builds. He uses only stoneware clays in a variety of colors and textures. He uses some manufactured glazes, but prefers our to create handcrafted glazes.

Kelly does most of the hand building and feels more comfortable creating sculptures through the use of coils, slabs and hand-formed shapes. She works in earth ware and stoneware clays. She uses a combination of glazes, both manufactured and our own special blends. She does the majority of artwork on the pieces, although some of the pieces are decorated by everyone in the family. Kelly has been commissioned to build multiple pieces and has entered juried art shows.

Larson is a quick study and the future of Orlando Pottery. At eight, he can create pieces through pinch, coil and slab methods. He is currently learning how to throw pieces on the wheel.

We appreciate you taking some of your precious time to look at our creations. Hopefully you enjoy seeing what we enjoy making!
