NEW! Product of the Month – Pottery by Priscilla

We love supporting local businesses, artists, musicians and creators of all things interesting. That’s why we carry as many locally-made items as we can, below is a story of one of those local companies that is now being carried in our Escondido Tasting Room.

Priscilla Christopher is a San Diego-based Ceramic Artist and her creations are this months “NEW! Product of the Month”.

Pottery by Priscilla

Pottery by Priscilla

Priscilla started creating ceramics about four years ago.  Spending most of her life working full-time in a stressful career in the mortgage industry, the recent housing crash left her unemployed and rather lost. Her father was an artist and threw pottery in the 60’s, so she had always had it in her life, so Priscilla decided to take this time and opportunity to do something for herself and she enrolled in ceramics classes. She was immediately hooked.

Ceramic Leaves

Ceramic leaves, used to make her Wine Charms, in bisque form, each done by hand and individually hand glazed.

“There’s something indescribable about starting with a handful of clay and creating something beautiful.  I find a soulful joy with every piece, I hope this is translated into my finished pieces.”

Each piece is absolutely one-of-a-kind.  Priscilla takes great pride in her glazing techniques.  She incorporates broken glass into the bottom of many bowls during the glaze process which produces gorgeous bright colors.  Also she’s discovered some wonderful glaze combinations which run together to create deep and various colors.

We welcome Pottery by Priscilla to our Escondido Tasting Room. Next time you stop in, make sure to see her amazing creations in person and maybe pick one up for yourself, or they make the perfect holiday gift!

Priscilla is brand new to the business and is currently working on getting her website up and running, but if you would like to contact her directly for special orders, please email her at and she will get back to you as soon as possible.
