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 glazed to blend in with the colors and patterns you already have in your home. Each piece is microwave and dishwasher safe. I throw on the wheel and often add hand built embellishments.  I clear glaze speckled clays, otherwise my glazes tend to be rich in color. I use several blues, deep reds, browns and olives.
     New this year are bud vases, 2 quart pitchers and mortar and pestal. . My works include bowls, platters, goblets, coffee mugs, communion sets, yarn bowls, clay buttons and shawl pins, colanders, vases, ring holders, garlic keepers,
butter dishes and butter bells. Decorative pieces include clay roses and a variety of song birds. Customers may also commission dinnerware place settings.
About the artist:

I have an associate degree from Virginia Western Community College in commercial art, and 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 pieces at open air markets. For the next two years, I took private pottery instruction from my mentor and friend, Ellen Braaten. Ellen is a retired 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 finally became an artist! It is as great as I always thought it would be. I hope you enjoy my pottery 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 ,as well as, 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.
