Bright Leaf Pottery was established in 2008 as a working studio for educational and practical use. It is operated out of Phyllis Turnham's home in Columbia Heights, Washington, DC.
Take a look at the Gallery and e-mail Phyllis to purchase a piece of her custom-designed, functional stoneware. Commissioned pieces or sets are also available by request.
Classes are offered for new potters and for those who want to develop their studio skills. Open Studio is available for experienced potters; you may use Bright Leaf's wheels, glazes, and electric kiln. Phyllis does all bisque and glaze firings herself; firings are typically executed two to three times per month. Contact Phyllis with any questions you may have about special services.
