Barb Bourscheidt, Nature's Love Clayworks

Nature's Lover kitchen pottery is non-toxic, microwave safe, and oven proof.  My unique garden pottery consisting of bird feeders, birdbaths, and garden pots is beautiful and functional.

Pottery Artists

Alyse Yeaman, Art Teacher at Gig Harbor High School

After studying mixed media art at Western Washington University, becoming an artist and enjoying my work was a dream.  While at WWU I pursued my Master's In Education and am an art teacher in the lovely Pacific Northwest.  I am inspired daily by my high school students and my three beautiful boys. 

Ann Danis Pottery

Ann demonstrates on her pottery wheel every week at the Saturday market. 

Becky Horkan

Becky’s pottery celebrates the rich hues of  the sea and sky.  All of her plates, cups and bowls are finished with food safe glazes.  You can see her work  displayed at the Ebb Tide Gallery in downtown Gig Harbor.


Christine Buchanan and students at Peninsula High School

Born in Portland, Oregon, Christine took to art as soon as she was able to hold a pencil.  Since 1993, Christine has been teaching Glass, Ceramics, Sculpture, Drawing and Painting at Peninsula High School in Gig Harbor, Washington.  As a strong supporter of her community, Christine donates selected pieces to charities such as the Altrusa Gig Harbor’s Empty Bowls event and the Gig Harbor History Museum, Washington Water Trails Association, and the Community Inclusion Program.

Dan Barnett Pottery

As a ceramic artist I have navigated the space between art and craft by creating both pottery and sculptures. I find these dual activities complement each other, fueling further investigations in each endeavor.

Dan Stromstad, Turned Wood Wonders

Dan is a mentor at his home and at the South Puget Sound Woodturners Club where he was President for three years.  He has demonstrated at clubs in the Pacific Northwest as well as at the State Fair.  Many of Dan’s creations are on display and for sale at Harbor Optical, which has been in business for over 30 years in Gig Harbor.


“It is very exciting to see what God provides as you develop the beauty of wood.  Some wood looks awful until you unearth the true beauty inside.”
