Orcas Island Pottery

Kimberly Hardy

After a 12 year career in biotechnology, 4th generation Kim Hardy has found her way back to pottery. Growing up following her grandmother and mother around the studio and never living more than steps away until adulthood, clay has always felt like home. 

Much like her mother, Kim's favorite part of the process is decorating and glazing, and she is one of the only people Syd trusts to assist her with glazing OIP's signature patterns.

Kim prefers to make small, precious objects with intricate carving and slip decoration such as her urchin vases, one of a kind espresso cups, and porcelain jewelry.
