Sommerville Pottery is wheel-thrown and hand-built functional stoneware pottery.  Monica Sommerville focuses on wheel-thorn pots, while Ray prefers to make platters and bowls using slabs.  Sommerville pottery is fired in an electric kiln to Cone 6 (approximately 2200 degrees) and glazed is a variety of glazes including blue, brown, red, black and purple.  Monica and Ray make pottery that is accessible and functional - their inventory includes more than 120 items including bowls, plates, brie bakers, vases, mugs, toothbrush holders, platter and mixing bowls.  Rather than focusing on contemporary artistic pottery, Monica and Ray strive to make traditional straightforward work that is well made, durable and functional.
