obvious object is

a tiny ceramics studio in the mountains of British Columbia, Canada.

We specialize in functional, light-weight stoneware and porcelain. Every piece is formed by hand, trimmed by hand, and glazed by hand. We never make the same object twice.

We are inspired by the aesthetics of early Japanese and Korean pottery, as well as the quiet, timeless shapes formed by more modern potters. We work to offer an alternative to mass-produced goods: real objects that are durable, useful, individual, and beautiful.

People tell us that our work feels different than most hand-made ceramics. Please take your time looking around the gallery, and let us know what interests you.

A selection of recent work is available in the Obvious Object online shop.
