Sustainability

100% of our studio's electricity is provided by renewable energy sources like wind, bio, and hydro.

100% of our studio's electricity is provided by renewable energy sources like wind, bio, and hydro.

We strive to use environmentally responsible technology out of respect for, and stewardship of, what must be one of the most gorgeous corners of creation here in the Pacific Northwest.  As a result, we work hard to create “legacy-quality” artwork in a renewable, sustainable, and responsible manner by:

  • investing in 100% renewable wind, hydro, and biomass power (zero fossil fuel energy use)
  • using only water soluble bio-degradable void fill (corn-starch peanuts) in our shipping and packaging (no petrochemicals)
  • recycling clay, slip, cardboard, inbound production supply containers, and void fill in our production and distribution processes
  • elaborate ventilation, heating, and cooling systems to maximize use of natural cool clean Oregon air and heat exchange from our kilns.
  • and extensive use of local resources (clay, glaze, slip all produced locally)
  • elimination of fossil fuel transportation costs via globe-spanning sea, continental-rail, and interstate-roadway to source any raw materials or components because all of our product is locally sourced or made
