McKeever Pottery

Your Subtitle text

     McKeever Pottery was begun in 2011, with a goal of combining asthetics and function into usable art. Several designs are available (See the Photo Gallery page for these collections)    
     Hello, my name is Rebecca McKeever and all of my pottery is handmade. It is both functional and decorative. Each piece is microwave and dishwasher safe. I throw on the wheel and often add hand built embellishments.  I glaze speckled clays clear, otherwise my glazes tend to be rich in color. I use several blues, deep reds, browns and olives.
     New this year are garlic keepers, clay buttons and shawl pins. My works include bowls, platters, goblets, coffee mugs, communion sets, yarn bowls, colanders, vases, ring holders, butter dishes and butter bells. Customers may also commission dinnerware place settings.

About the artist:

I have an associate degree from Virginia Western Community College in commercial art. I have a  B.A. in fine arts from Roanoke College with a concentration in pottery. I am an active member of the Blue Ridge Potter's Guild and a retired elementary art teacher. 

In 2010, I started working in clay again and selling my work at open air markets. For the past two years, I have had private pottery instruction from my mentor and friend, Ellen Braaten. Ellen is an adjunct professor in the architecture department of Virginia Tech. Her support and guidance have been key to my success!

Twenty some years after college, I have finally grown up to be an artist! It is as great as I always thought it would be. I hope you enjoy the pottery that I make and that you can see it in person at one of my shows. See the Sales Events page.

I enjoy personally selling my work, to hear peoples' opinions, and get new ideas. I enjoy meeting the people who will use the pottery.

I also welcome commissions, with generally a three to four week delivery date. See the Contact Info page.
