For a unique handmade work of functional or decorative art, look no further than Sarah Houde Pottery in Hollywood, Maryland. From a fish platter or print, berry bowl or dogwood urn, you’ll find innovative designs that are made from the finest materials.

In 1978, while I was a senior in college majoring in Marine Biology, I started making pottery. As my love for the art and skills  grew, I received more requests from friends to make teapots, lamps, and mugs. While I studied in graduate school, I set  up my first studio with a used wheel and kiln.

Although I finished school in 1985, my urge to create pottery kept me from devoting my life to science. Since 1987, I have worked in my waterfront studio making fish platters and other pieces. With the exception of a break in 1989 to have my son, I have been making  pottery full-time.
