Chris Pettingill and Peggi Sue Peters met in 1984 while attending Harford Community College in Bel Air, Maryland and went on to receive their B.F.A. degrees at the New York State School of Ceramics at Alfred University. Chris continued on to study at the University of The Arts, in Philadelphia, and received his M.F.A. in ceramic art from Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana in 1992. They now live and work along the banks of the Susquehanna River in Afton, NY

In 1995 they started their studio in an old church in Delta, PA and set about to make functional pots on the potter’s wheel. “Since my background is in ceramic sculpture, we baked and cooked and ate and drank from everything we made for about a year before even trying to sell a single pot”, says Chris, “because we wanted to make sure they worked properly and were sturdy enough for everyday use.” They settled on white stoneware and porcelain clays for their work, and are glaze fired to Cone 10 (2350 degrees F.) in electric kilns with glaze made from nontoxic materials. “We formulate and make all of our own glazes from raw materials in our studio, to be sure that they are safe not only for people to use, but for us to work with as well.”

Chris and Peggi Sue have conducted workshops at the University of South Carolina, Augusta State University, Goucher College, and for various local elementary and high schools. Their work is in use and in private collections across the United States and around the world.
