Michael and Michele Gwinup established Blue Spruce Pottery in 1976. It is a family owned and operated business ran with the help of the Gwinup's daughter Melissa, and her husband Patrick Woodman. Their pottery studio is located in Bend, Oregon USA, between the Cascade Mountains and the High Desert of Central Oregon. This beautiful landscape inspires much of the imagery, forms and textures that are used to make their Raku and Stoneware Pottery.
All of Blue Spruce Pottery's pots are made on a potter's wheel or hand built from slabs of clay. The clay and glazes are made using special formulas that have been developed over the past 30 years. All of the glazes are lead free and non toxic.
Raku pottery is meant to be decorative and should not be used to hold food or liquids. Clean only with a soft cloth and water.
