Free Ceramics is a family run pottery in Helena, Montana where a team of artists work together to create whimsical pottery that will always bring a smile to your face. Inspired by the designs of Emily Free Wilson, handmade, functional, porcelain pottery is made with care, decorated individually, and painted by hand to give each piece a personality of it’s own.
Members include Emily Free Wilson,Matt Wilson, Metta Hallinan and Nathan Haney. Our mission is to inspire through creativity. We strive to accomplish that through our functional porcelain pottery, ceramic art and by offering Clay Club classes to children of all ages.
The style and design of functional porcelain pottery originated from Emily Free Wilson who continues to do all the decorating for each piece. Colorful, whimsical imagery is created influenced by Christmas lights, raindrops, river rock and fireworks. Family history and nostalgic remnants from the past also appear into various designs. With a spontaneous and free movement of line, Free Ceramics creates simple, functional forms with the intent they bring joy with every use.
