Barbara Walch Pottery

Search Thorndike Maine

Barbara Walch, one of only a few American potters who work primarily with the pinch technique, has been making handbuilt pottery since 1973. The pottery is stoneware, a durable clay fired at very high temperatures, with the exterior left unglazed. The functional reality of the pottery serves to connect daily activities of eating and socializing with those essential details of the natural world, and serves as a reminder to make the special from the ordinary, to ritualize and to make new traditions. She also manages the Fire Flower Garden.
