Since 1975, I've been producing quality handthrown stoneware pottery professionally.
The pottery is leadfree, and produced in my studio/sales outlet  in Spirit Lake, Idaho.

All of my pottery is designed to functional and affordable.

I have written many articles for Ceramics Monthly magazine, Pottery Making Illustrated Magazine, and the Journal of the American Art Pottery Association.  To see the collected articles, follow this link.

So where can I get Sondahl Pottery?

At my home in downtown Spirit Lake, Idaho, all year around.  My shop is within 45 miles of Coeur D'Alene,  Blanchard, Rathdrum, Athol, Newport, Sandpoint, and Spokane.
