Jess Teesdale Pottery – Modern Functional Ceramics


Jess Teesdale is a studio potter living and working in Portland, Maine. Working clay since 1996, Jess has created a unique brand of one of a kind functional pottery that she makes in her home studio. Using hand-building techniques, she designed her lines of tableware to be comfortable in your hands and enticing to touch. Jess’s inspired desire is to create aesthetically pleasing, modern, functional handmade ceramics for everyday use. Her subtle palette of blues and greens set her work apart from the typical browns and earth tones that traditional pottery is known for. Playful imagery, patterns and textures invite you to find your personal narrative or nostalgic connection in each of Jess’s designs.
