Charlestowne Pottery

Leo & Karin Villaroman - It was a partnership of two individuals from both ends of the world that created this pottery. In September of 1992 in a small apartment kitchen in Atlanta, a potter's studio was born. The wheel was inside the bedroom. Karin would wake up early to pick leaves from the garden from which Leo would make molds. The base of the pots are rolled on a basket texture, then shapes are formed and thrown on the wheel. The pieces are all decorated with leaves or shells and sea life.

Leo & Karin now live and work here in southwest Florida.

All the pottery is oven, dishwasher and food safe.
