Natasha Lawyer and Brett Bashaw met in 2013, at a coffee shop in Seattle and were married six months later. They have lived in a Volkswagen van, an apartment with pink carpet, and a vintage airstream they restored together. They discovered their love for ceramics during their time living in their airstream and started going to pottery classes separately. She at a local community center and he, as part of his undergraduate degree. Natasha, a full-time illustrator at the time, began selling work on the side and slowly they began to make pottery together.
A year later, having outgrown their space, they sold their airstream, moved to Vermont, and bought a ten acre patch of woods with a tiny cabin on it. They christened it the 'Sugarhouse Homestead' because of an old stone sugarhouse foundation they found in their back woods. Shortly after they built themselves a little pottery studio in a grove of maple trees and the Sugarhouse Ceramic Co. was established.
Three years later, having once again outgrown their studio, they began their new search for a new home. You can find them now in the Atlantic Maritimes of Canada in a temporary studio, making pots and looking for their dream studio.
Sugarhouse Ceramic Co. is the couple’s first joint business venture and most days you can find them drinking lattes and making pottery or planning their next trip. To check out what they're up to on a regular basis you can find them on Instagram.
