About Me


My name is Norris Harward, I am a nuclear chemist and a long time collector.  Each piece of pottery that I have for sale is hand coil built, stone polished, painted and all are traditionally fired. One of the goals of this web site and of this collection has been to collect only pottery that incorporates the use of traditional methods of making and firing pottery while only collecting and selling pieces that are creative and innovative in their forms and designs.

All the pottery for sale are one of a kind and you will probably never find a similar piece through any gallery or website. I am not a gallery or a professional photographer, I am a collector that has decided to share his love of the art by selling my collection, with much regret.  This collection was started out of passion and began from a single pot, from a Great Aunt, that gave me a black Minnie over 30 years ago.  I started collecting very slowly and as my passion grew I became more interested in the culture and the understanding of the art.  The time is drawing near, (not too near yet) for my little girl to start collage, hence the sale of my collection.  

This website is very basic in its construct and was constructed by myself to try and show case the beautiful pieces I have aquiered over time.  If there appears to be a flaw in a particular pot, it is only the lack of the photograph.  All of these pieces are perfection in every way. There are no chips, cracks, restoration or any flaws of any kind, they are perfect in every way!

I am so confident in the pieces I offer, that I offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee on all pieces I sell.  If you are unsatisfied for any reason, simple return your item in undamaged original condition within 30 days for a COMPLETE REFUND, less any additional shipping charges! You will not find a Guarantee like that anywhere else on the web! I have not had a complaint yet, or a return.  Venture in and you will see what beautiful, flawless, museum quality, pieces I have to offer.

Due to my limited business sence and ability, I do not have the means of using credit cards, I accept personal checks, certified checks and money orders. I also have a PayPal account at nucchem239@yahoo.com.  Pottery will be shipped upon cleared payment.  Lay Away plans are available, 1/4 down payment with agreement on a payment plan between you and myself.

I understand the cost of these types of investments, PLEASE contact me at 925-470-6479 or write to nucchem239@yahoo.com or harward2@llnl.gov to speak with me about a particular purchase or to request more pictures ( I have only photographed one side of the pot, there may be many more views you would like to see) or for more infornmation on a particular pot. I want to be sure you are completely confident and happy with your purchase. This is my collection with out any gallery overhead or need to make an extreme profit, some pieces may be negotiable in price.  Please contact me to make an offer.

Thank you!
