Our Story

 

 

 

 

➳Hiya! We're Matt and Tara, a husband and wife artist duo originally from New England. Pitch Pine Pottery began in late 2015 in a little farmhouse by the coast. After some time in the Southwest, our current studio is in Northern Vermont.

 ➳We met in high school at a cheesy dance, and have long been friends and partners. After struggling in college to find our paths, we decided to seek an alternative lifestyle to that of our parents. Heeding his late brother's words to start a family business, Matt pursued blacksmithing and photography. He completed a four year apprenticeship under a master blacksmith in our hometown.  

 ➳Originally planning to become an art teacher, Tara switched gears mid-way through her degree. She received her BA with a concentration in Ceramic Arts, along with minor degrees in Art History and English. After college she apprenticed under a master potter, and worked in historical ceramic reproduction. She started Pitch Pine in late 2015 out of the farmhouse dinning room, with Matt joining full time in 2017.

 ➳"Our desire is to bring art with form and function into every home. We feel strongly that life often imitates art and seek to inspire and be inspired by the world around us."
