Peter and Susan Stark

Peter and Susan Stark have been making functional pottery in Longmont for over 20 years. Peter makes the pottery and Susan decorates it.

Peter likes his pots to appear animated with a sense of volume or fullness. He throws most of the forms on the pottery wheel and then manipulates them off and on the wheel to achieve the desired shape.

Susan uses the Majolica Technique to decorate the pots. Majolica is colorful watercolor like decoration, which is applied on top of an opaque white background glaze.
