About Blue Eagle

Blue Eagle Pottery of Illinois joined PINCH’s collection in 2014, inspired by owner Jena Sujat’s travels in the Southwestern United States.

The color scheme evokes a Southwestern sunset, and is earthy and bright.

Blue Eagle potters (and husband and wife) Robert Blue and Susan B. Galloway founded their studio in 1983. As they say about their work, "Our work embodies skill, insight, and respect for both the material and process.  It is useful in the kitchen, on the table, or as an accent to decor.  The warmth and beauty crafted into each pot will touch those who use it.  Its artistry functions best through daily use, through intimate acquaintance."

Bob and Susan work exclusively in stoneware clay for production pottery.  Their method of choice is a reduction fired kiln using natural gas.  This firing method naturally creates some slight variation in color.

OSB - Oil Spot Blue:  A deep blue with navy and black speckles resembling an oil spotted effect. Accented with a snowy white with blue speckled stripe and rim, as well as a dark navy stripe.
