Situated on beautiful Whidbey Island in Washington state, we at STILLFire Pottery create our signature line of fine handcrafted porcelain pottery. Since 1980, Carol Ann Bauer has been working professionally in clay, designing & producing many lines of her decorated functional pieces. Joining her full time in 1995, Howard Hamsa, husband and business manager made it possible to move to Whidbey and build this as our family business.
Whether you are looking for a unique gift for someone special, the perfect piece to create a quiet focal point of beauty in a room, or a set of dinnerware that reflects your sense of style, STILLFire Pottery has a great selection of work for you.
We have shifted our focus from traveling to many art festivals to
more time working here at our Whidbey Island home & studio.
Though we miss seeing many of our longtime customers and artist colleagues at shows,
we are able to delve more deeply into creative work and island life.
We are busier than ever supplying our galleries & filling online orders through our webstore.
Our work is available through these galleries:
Orcas Island Pottery, Eastsound, WA on beautiful Orcas Island
Ashford Creek Pottery, Ashford, WA on the road to Paradise on Mt Rainier
Penn Cove Gallery, Coupeville, WA
Hellebore Glass Gallery, Langley, WA
Our online store has launched and new items are being posted as we have time!

Thank you to all of our customers!
Hearing about your enjoyment of our work
and your continued investing in our pottery keeps us going.
Along with our signature line of functional porcelain pottery, we also make one of a kind raku marine themed wall pieces as well as an evolving selection of porcelain jewelry.
Each piece is formed individually by hand, glazed & decorated with our own specially formulated glazes, and gas fired to 2400 degrees F. The finished ware is durable, lead-free, microwaveable, and dishwasher safe.
