Helen and Alan Weichman have been creating handmade pottery together in their Poconos Mountains, PA studio since 1973. They make functional dinnerware and animal sculptures, finding continual inspiration from the dogs, cats and parrots living with them.

The line of serving ware includes nut bowls with a separate compartment for shells, the “Bageggler” used to make perfect microwaved eggs for bagel sandwiches. They also have an assortment of animal-themed teapots and soup tureens.

Helen has a series of dogs doing yoga as well as giraffes, manatees, elephants, cats and vultures. They do custom orders such as animal sculptures created from pet photos.

Be sure to catch Helen and Allen demonstrating their work at Sugarloaf Crafts Festivals!
