"Handmade pottery creates a person-to-person intimacy. The hand of the artist reaches through the object to touch the hand of the user… “ -Wayne Higby
We are a husband/wife team of ceramic artists. We believe that art is found everywhere and want to add beauty to the simplest aspects of life. We create functional and non-functional works.
Leah Simmons DeCapio has made art all of her life. She received a Studio Arts Degree (with an emphasis in Ceramics) and an Anthropology Degree from the University of Colorado. Today, she lives and creates in the mountains of Colorado. Her work is largely inspired by the beauty of nature around her. Scott DeCapio is a self-taught potter. His educational background is in Biology, from Johnson State in Vermont. In recent years, his passion for mountain climbing has taken him on multiple expeditions to Alaska and places as far away as Pakistan and Kyrgyzstan. When not traveling, he divides his time between the mountains and in the studio with Leah.
