Specializing in Functional Artwork


We offer traditional mugs with cozy handles, as well as versatile tumblers in a variety of sizes. Don’t limit yourself to mornings only, enjoy using GMP drinkware for all of your hot & cold beverages.


All glazes at GMP are homemade, which means that no two pieces will ever be the same.

If you love one of our current glazes you might want to buy several pieces. Since every batch is slightly different and unique, that particular look may never be available again!

Serving Pieces

From tiny bowls perfect for dipping, to stacking cereal bowls, to bowls big enough for a crowd, GMP pieces bring beauty to everyday eating.

Our Name

While most of our pieces are made with clay from Archie Bray, we also have a special, limited line of pieces made with indigenous clay from our remote property in the Garnet Mountains.

These pieces always sell out quickly! If you’d like to be first in line to hear when a new batch is available, please email us to get on the waiting list.

The GMP Logo

Our logo features a hand-drawn sketch of our cabin in the Garnet Mountains.

Just like all of our pottery pieces, the cabin been a true labor of love. Scott harvested every single tree from our property, dragged it to the build site with our four-wheeler, peeled every log, and then custom cut and placed each one.

The (actual) blood and sweat that he’s put into this building really cannot be overstated.

It’s a work of art that we get to enjoy as a family and it’s one of our favorite places on earth!

We started camping there in 2014 with our daughter, who was five years old at the time.

The next spring our twins were born and we rocked a pack-n-play all summer.

Yep 3-month old twins in a wall tent, boiling water for bottles in a JetBoil, changing diapers on a cot, mosquito netting galore – quite the adventure!🙂

Scott broke ground for the cabin in 2016.

And he’s been building ever since!

Our cabin progress circa 2022.

And that’s our story!


Our next plans and dreams involve off-the-grid pottery retreats.

Sound like fun? You know the drill, drop us an email and we’ll get you on the list.
