About Pinch

Pinch was founded in 1979 by three female potters who considered themselves renegades — they preferred to make pinch pots, didn't know how to throw, and didn't care to! In their spirit, Pinch continues to carry artists' work we find interesting, unconventional, and beautiful. 

Our Main Street shop is now open for both in-store shopping and curbside pickup Tuesdays - Sundays from 11 to 5.  (Private appointments are also available.) We've missed connecting with you in person and look forward to seeing you again. We've been practicing the art of showing a smile while wearing a mask; laugh lines and wrinkles help a lot!

Thank you so much for your support for our small business and the many artists we are proud to represent.

Drinking from this mug each day can be a hopeful reminder that change is possible. Let's get out the vote this November. Microwave & dishwasher safe.

Emily Rosenfeld

Emily's designs are known for their thoughtful design and the story they create when worn. Many of her pieces are personalizable and can be added to over time. Right up the street from us in Massachusetts, Emily is one of our beloved artists and one of our favorites, too.
