Matt Haeuser is the most productive of the 4th generation potters at Orcas Island Pottery. Matt received his ceramics training by osmosis– growing up at the pottery from the age of seven. In 2004, needing money to finish college, Matt made the commitment to “get serious” about making pottery and found that he rapidly excelled in both form and glaze design. Since then he has become one of our important production potters, creating beautiful and friendly forms and mesmerizing glaze patterns. He is currently living and working in California and comes to the pottery to glaze and fire his work. His work blends seamlessly with his mother’s, filling out our dinnerware selections with mugs, bowls, serving pieces and more.
