The Contact Collaborative is Jason Hartsoe, Bill Jones, and Steve Theberge. Joined by shared experience, aesthetic, and intent, we have come together to support and encourage each other’s creative goals and experimentation. Through online collaboration, late-night phone calls, and face-to-face dialogue, the Contact Collaborative serves as fertile creative ground for us individually and collectively.
We work deliberately with simple tools and coarse materials, making work that is both forward-looking and rooted in our tradition. We aim to illuminate each essential step of our process, from the wild clay to the wood ash glaze. Our pots are made for rigorous daily use on the table, shelf, or altar; we hope they serve you for generations to come.
