Welcome! I'm Shannon Morrison, the owner and maker behind N3 Pottery. I found my passion for ceramics through a circuitous route. With a background in biology and botany, I make a living as an ecologist, protecting natural resources in Vermont. I took a clay class in 2008 and have been hooked ever since. I feel my affiliation with the natural world informs my artistic expression. N3 Pottery was born out of a desire to share that affiliation, and to pursue the seemingly endless array of creative possibilities that clay presents.
The majority of what I create is sgraffito decorated pottery that is wheel thrown white clay bodies overlain with colored slip or underglaze. The work is characterized by bold, graphic designs using simple harmonious color schemes of slip and glaze. The result is functional handmade art that you can hold, feel and use. N3 Pottery also has a line of wall-art that uses compilations of ceramic plates/boxes to convey the landscapes of Vermont.
I work out of my home studio in Moretown, Vermont. Look for me on Instagram to see what I'm up to in the studio.
