Gail Speidell Pottery
​Functional Art for everyday living

My name is Gail Speidell.
I am a potter living and working in Central Virginia.  I love making pottery that people will use, and I strive to make pieces that are beautiful and function well.  I love the caracteristics of clay, and all the stages of making. I hope you enjoy looking at my work.
My pottery is made to be used and enjoyed, and it is quite durable.  Be careful, though, not to shock pottery pieces with drastic changes in temperature.  Never put hot food directly into cool pottery. Place the pottery in the oven while the oven is still cool.  Heat the oven, the dish, and the food at the same time.  It can go into the dishwasher, though it will last longer if hand washed.
