Frank Philipps has been making pottery in Ashland since 1974. A student of Bauhaus master potter, Maguerite Wildenhain.
Frank's pottery reflects this learning experience and her influence with his strong forms and functional designs. Throwing skills taught to Frank date from pottery made by a German family in 1570; his forms and decorations are contemporary.
In his Ashland studio, Frank creates each piece from start to finish using custom stoneware clay bodies and original glazes. His designs are hand-carved, incised and textured; some are literal paintings made with brushes and slips, often inspired by images in nature.
Frank's Pottery is always lead-free and dishwasher safe.
