We are Becca and Nathan Webb, a husband-and-wife pair of potters settled on an old farmstead in central Vermont. We share 50 acres with two young kids, a big yellow dog, and a few chickens.
We really love making pottery: bowls and mugs, plates and platters, vases, serving dishes, and butter keepers. Our work is available at our studio, online, through galleries, shows and fairs, as well as for custom wedding registries and dinnerware sets. You are welcome to pay us a visit!

Becca began making pottery in high school art class, and went on to pursue ceramics as an art major at Swarthmore College in Pennsylvania. She has been a full-time studio potter since 2003 when she graduated and moved to the New Hampshire woods to live with her very own kiln. Becca loves making organic, soft, useful stoneware pottery forms, and exhibits her work around the northeast. Becca is a state-juried member of the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen, a board member of the Vermont Crafts Council, and has been published in Studio Potter, as well as 500 Plates and Chargers.
Nathan began working in clay at Bates College in Maine, and continued throwing pottery at a variety of potteries across the United States. He is currently an instructor at the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen in Hanover, NH. Nathan has been developing glazes from granite and other local materials, and is published in 500 Vases, 500 Raku, and 500 More Teapots.
Since we met in 2008, we’ve been building things. First came the 30 x 50 foot pole barn we call our kiln shed. Once we had a roof on that, we embarked on a three-year kiln building project, chronicled here, here, here, and here. Our first firing of our 300 cubic foot kiln in 2012 is in story form here. Meanwhile, we renovated the old milk house on our property to be our pottery showroom. And we built a shed on the back of that for our tractor- which also comes in very handy for pottery showing when we host events. (There was also a Becca-built a chicken coop in the midst.) As if that wasn’t enough building, we put up a structure in the fall/winter of 2012/2013 that is our pottery-making workshop. In the fall of 2013, our daughter was born. (Immediately topping the list of best things we’ve ever done!!!)
