Our store is now combined with our studio building.

The new store is across the street from the original store and behind the Victorian building at 608 Sutter.

It is the big red barn at 608 1/2 Sutter. There is an eighty car parking lot right in front and a 55 car lot on the lower level of the Sutter Street Steakhouse right next door..

We are a Collaborative Pottery Producing Functional Ware, Architectural Specialties, Sinks and Tile. Founded in 1977 by G.F. and Penny Cloud and located in Folsom, California. Folsom is an old gold rush town located just East of Sacramento on the American River. Our store and studio are adjacent to  the shore of Lake Natoma next to the State Powerhouse visitors center and down the street from the Folsom history museum.

We throw about 80% of our porcelain on the potters wheel. We cast about 30% in molds we have designed and made ourselves. We do site specific custom tile in both flat painted and bas-relief handbuilt designs. We work together on most projects and each person brings their strengths to a project- thus we work in a wide variety of styles depending on who the lead artist is. We work in two distinct firing mediums. Oxidation high fire- which yields the painted pottery (there are about 40 patterns developed over the last 30 years by Penny Cloud and for the past decade, Linda Allison.) In oxidation also are many of Linda Allison's one of a kind seasonal patterns. The other firing style is known as high fire reduction. Mary Cargile is the lead artist on these. These pieces are done in a kiln that is smoked all the way through the firing. The glazes come out in a wide variety of ways- and what we give up in predictability is made up in spades by excitement. We are a family owned and run business. Because it is our kids and grandkids and friends who work here and we want to keep our clients happy and healthy, we use no Lead, Cadmium or Barium in our work and use no toxics in our studio.
