Lobster Rose Pottery is the brain child of Gretchen Allen Johns. She is a lifelong student of medieval and renaissance European material and culinary culture. She decided to start trying to produce some of the ceramic items that she’d been studying and began taking pottery classes in February of 2016. She then completely fell obsessively in love with the medium. She is also a lifelong fan of fantasy and science fiction; the geeky side of life. These two influences can be strongly seen in her pottery. Many pieces are attempts at replicas of historical pieces and others are cool geeky things. Some are both!
