Michael and Michele Gwinup established Blue Spruce Pottery in 1976. It is a family owned and operated business ran with the help of the Gwinups’ daughter Melissa, and her husband Patrick Woodman. Their pottery studio is located in Bend, Oregon USA, between the Cascade Mountains and the High Desert of Central Oregon. This beautiful landscape inspires much of the imagery, forms and textures that are used to make their Raku and Stoneware Pottery. The Gwinup/Woodman family works together to create a variety of unique handmade pottery for functional and decorative use.
