The story Behind Daniel Vito Ceramics

Collecting pottery and using it daily has enriched my life. I have filled my home with artwork and ceramics, both decorative and functional.

It all started when I threw my first pot in 1972 and the excitement, the thrill, is still there. The responsiveness of clay, the way it records every nuance of the maker’s touch, is incredibly revealing and rewarding. Learning is constant. The firing is a mysterious birthing event, where I surrender control to the kiln gods who put the final touches on the vessel. Opening the kiln is like experiencing Christmas morning when I was a boy. There are exciting surprises and some disappointments, too. There is always room to grow, ideas to bring to fruition, experiments to try, and new glazes to test. It doesn’t get better than this.

I created this online store to share my love of clay with others all over the world. All of my products are handmade in my workshop and studio just a few blocks from my house. I hope you find something you love!

My Mission

Do no harm and make the world a better place.

Making and being surrounded by beautiful hand-made objects, sometimes given or received as gifts, passed down from one generation to the next, connects us to people, places, and affection between one person to another. I like creating objects that endure and may become part of that web.
