About this Maker
FD Pottery offers contemporary handcrafted pottery for the tabletop and home. Established by Francis DeFabo in 2011, this collection of functional ceramics features an array of subtle forms and inviting textures. Francis blends with traditional wheel-thrown forms and hand-built pottery, often adding embossed patterns from textiles and simple hand-carved details onto the surfaces of his designs. Like a beautifully worn-in sweater, Francis intends for these surfaces to wear and patina with years of daily use. From whiskey cups to serving platters to flower urns, each piece is made by Francis in his home studio in Latrobe, PA.
