JD Wolfe Pottery

Earthy pottery has become a serious weakness of mine. Thankfully, it works well with a minimalist aesthetic, which I’ve been embracing in my home over the past year or so. These beautiful pieces are from Milwaukee artist¬†JD Wolfe. Inspired by both her Scandinavian roots and an interest in Asian design, JD makes each piece by hand. I always love polka dots, but the cloud dishes below are definitely my favorite. They’re intended as sushi plates, but I’d love to use them for jewelry or small change by the door. You can check out and shop the full selection on Etsy right here. Prices range from $12 to $80 each. xo, grace

*JD’s husband sells awesome all-natural BBQ sauce on Etsy, too!

    The cloud plates are so amazing! I want all our dishes to be neutral, while my boyfriend prefers color and kitsch, I feel like the cloud plates would be a happy medium. Thanks for the great post!

    Gotta love the dots!!! I’m a big fan of JD’s work.

  8. Kate says:

    Loving all the pottery features! If you’re taking requests at the moment, I’d love a post on traditional Japanese pottery, since it’s such an inspiration to so many of the ceramicists you feature.

  9. Terri Barton says:

    Wow, I love your designs! I ordered 6 of your cloud spoon rests back in November and I have yet to receive them. I ordered them for some special Christmas gifts because they are so unique. I know my friends will love them. I REALLY hope to find these on my doorstep soon. Can you help with locating this order?? It went through on Nov 21. Order number 5247-3141-7557-4593.

    Hi Terri, Please look for an email from me regarding your order. The best way to contact me is through my website jdwolfepottery.com Thanks! Jen Wolfe
