ABOUT ELIZA CLAY

Eliza Clay is Hanover Ridge Pottery in the Pacific Northwest. Originally launched in rural Eastern Ohio, pots are designed to merge function and beauty. A firm believer in the importance of beauty in the everyday, Sia creates wheel-thrown pottery ranging from tea bowls and children’s water-cups to large vases and salad bowls, created for everyday use in the home. Most popular are her mugs and signature dishes:  Tiny Cups for Tiny Hands and the Tea-Steeping Bowls. All pots are non toxic, so are safe for all kitchen/tabletop use. Clay is fired to temperatures ranging from approximately 2,200-2,380 degrees F. All dishes are oven and dishwasher safe.

Drawing inspiration from many potters who have gone before her, she will forever be a kneeling at the feet of the masters, in awe of this ancient and beautiful craft. Sia’s work is from the heart, an act of love, rooted in Japanese and English forms and fueled by her love for wind, weather and water. The shells used for decoration on the sides of the pots have been collected from the shores of the Puget Sound in Washington State. The spirit, coastlines and music of Scotland, Ireland and England where Sia lived for a while is a huge influence on her work. On the smaller pots, she signs with her Celtic ring purchased from a silversmith in Edinburgh. It has mysteriously stayed with her throughout all these years despite losing every other piece of jewelry…
