About - RiverlaneStudios


Welcome to Riverlane Studios:  small-batch and bespoke pottery handcrafted in Columbus, Ohio 

Hi, I’m Michelle! I'm the maker behind Riverlane Studios. I make functional, everyday wares by hand in my home-based studio in Columbus. Riverlane Studios wares are durable, one of a kind, and inspired by the natural beauty of clay, the changing seasons, and the world we live in (with a little whimsy for good measure). My favorite forms to create are miniatures, especially tiny tea sets with pretty hand-painted decorations.

I specialize in unique and custom items, made to order per your specifications. Custom orders take 3-4 weeks to complete, depending on the size, level of detail required, and current workload. Contact me to discuss your project and get a quote.

Riverlane Studios pottery is durable, one of a kind and safe for everyday use. If cared for and used properly, your stoneware pottery will last you a lifetime. 

Fired at over 2,100°F, They’re safe for use with food and drink, and plenty durable to withstand the microwave, oven and dishwasher. Avoid sudden, drastic changes in temperature, as this may cause the pot to crack or break. Never take a mug from the hot dishwasher and fill it with cold water, or remove a dish from the refrigerator and place it directly into the oven.

Ceramic bakeware cooks more evenly than most metal pans and retains heat after baking. It’s non-reactive and ideal for casseroles, cobblers and other dishes that are served warm. It also makes for a beautiful serving dish. Tips:  When roasting a chicken or similar item, add some liquid to ensure it cooks evenly. Never use on a stove or other direct heating element, or place a hot dish from the oven directly on a cold surface.

Ceramic teapots have been used by for over 11,00 years. They’re designed to retain heat, making them ideal for black tea. They’re also easy to clean. Tips:  Boil water in a separate kettle or pot, then swirl some hot water in your teapot to warm it before use. Never use on the stove or other direct heating element.

Care instructions are packaged with Riverlane Studios cookware and tea pots. Some specialty items, including Raku and wares with luster, require special care, and will be marked accordingly.
