Maker & Founder of Piton Pottery
Creating modern heirlooms for a handmade lifestyle.
Piton (/ˈpiːtɒn/; also called a pin or peg) used in climbing as a piece of gear to protect the climber from falling.
Piton Pottery is based in Vancouver BC and is inspired by the mountains and an outdoor lifestyle. As a small, local business every piece is made by my hands. I strive to bring the solitude and nostalgia of the Pacific Northwest into everyday objects. I focus on making simple, detailed work with a vintage modern feel. Using sustainable materials and ethically produced wares the beauty of each piece can be felt in the process and the product. Bringing slowmade pieces into the home I hope to create a more mindful setting for the user in hopes to bring an awareness and appreciation to one's surroundings. Injecting utilitarian objects and tasks with sentiment I hope to create functional pottery that instils a feeling of warmth. I want these pieces to bring back something simple and good natured. Each piece is unique and has a slight imperfection, like a beauty mark from my hands.
