Barbara Benning of Clay Designs.Benning makes functional soda-fired stoneware pottery. Her plates, mugs, bowls, and more look rustic and old-world. She creates this effect by using objects you might find in your house and traditional reduction-fired glazes.

Barbara has been a Pike Place Market artisan for over 30 years, and her pottery is enjoyed throughout the world.
