On a 200 acre farm in central New York State I am building a house, a business, a family, a life. My vision for all of these extends beyond my capabilities and lifespan. It is a vision of elegance, simplicity and utility. My pots are reflections of this vision and embody the qualities of the life I seek. They are exuberant and quiet, expansive and constrained.


Normandy Alden has a studio in upstate NY where she makes her elegant porcelain tableware and vessels. She lives on a family-run organic, grass-fed beef and pork operation known as Cairncrest Farm. Much of her work in inspired by the rural landscape where she lives. She is a recent MFA graduate from the University of Nebraska, Lincoln. Read More.
