Back Bay Pottery is based in the little town of Los Osos on the coast of California. Each piece of pottery is completely handcrafted. Whether hand-formed or wheel thrown, every piece is made with attention to detail and vibrant colors, inspired by the earth and ocean.

A little about myself…
My name is Christine, I live in the little town of Los Osos at the back of the bay in California & always have.
Growing up in this beautiful area I couldn’t help but be inspired by nature, birds, leaves, flowers, and the ocean. I was raised by artists and crafters and have been creating my whole life. I was taught how to look at things, not for what they are but for what they can become.

When I discovered ceramics (in 2010) it fit so perfectly. It is such a versatile medium that I am able to use all of my artistic skills. I love the idea of making useful and beautiful things that people will want to use every day.

I am drawn to texture and color and I make things that I want for my own home.
Most of my ideas come to me in quiet moments – often while I’m sleeping – so I keep a notebook by my bedside table to jot them down. I use both the wheel and hand building to create my pieces.

All my pottery is fired twice, and sometimes I use a process that requires a third or fourth firing. One of the best things is to open the kiln to see the amazing transformation: what was once a ball of clay is now a beautiful piece of art.
My favorite techniques is called slip trailing. I draw with a squeeze bottle filled with liquid clay. I love coming up with new designs put on my pottery. It makes each piece special & unique.

My husband Tino is a huge support for me in life and work. He built my studio, and finds all of my used equipment – like kilns and potter’s wheels – which he fixes up so they work like new.
