About Rooted in Clay

Firing with wood, the flames travel throughout the kiln, touching each pot and creating a range of beautiful earth tones and surface effects......


Shana Brautigam is a potter and teaching artist working at Rooted in Clay pottery studio in Rindge, NH.  She makes her forms using hand-building techniques, such as pinching, coiling, and slab building.  Without using the wheel, Shana creates a variety of unique forms, including everything from bowls and mugs to teapots, large vessels, and clay instruments.  She often decorates the surface by imprinting natural objects, such as leaves, ferns, evergreens, and nutshells into the clay.  By incorporating these designs into her work, Shana shares her love and respect for the natural world, while bringing the beauty of the outdoors into your home.
