Adam Gruetzmacher is a studio potter working in Saint Paul, Minnesota. He makes functional tableware in stoneware using traditional wheel throwing and hand building techniques. Working in such a way allows for subtle variations to occur naturally over the arc of a making cycle; enabling him to consider each piece individually. With a deep love of hand making and the tradition of craftsmanship, Adam references phrases of mass production and historical hand made pottery traditions, while being influenced by mid century modern design. He takes pride in making every-day objects that work well and are crafted with care and consideration.
