Grasshopper Pottery



My name is Chris Brodigan. I've loved pottery since the first time I touched clay 20 + years ago.

Art saves lives, and I am proof of just that. Without pottery and an incredible  teacher / mentor I would have never graduated high school. Without that seemingly small accomplishment, I wouldn't have my career, I wouldn't have my home, I wouldn't have my family. Essentially, I wouldn't have any of the important parts of my life. I will never be able to express my gratitude to my mentor and dear friend Jack, Thank you!

I am a 36-year-old husband, father, and full time railroad conductor, who is trying to make everyone he knows their favorite cup. I obsessively hand make highly functional pottery focusing on, symmetry, clean lines and a monochromatic style.

Each piece is carefully designed to suit the unique characteristics of different beverages and different people. I want to help people become more connected to the regular objects they used every day.
