Sarah Kobrinsky: Handmade in Richmond

Radio Free Richmond


A year and a half ago we moved our studio, Jered's Pottery, to Richmond. We make fine dinnerware out of local California clay for some of the nation's top chefs and designers. When chefs strive to cook with the finest locally sourced ingredients, using dinnerware manufactured overseas greatly diminishes these efforts. We are passionate about bringing the artist back into the manufacturing process, and proud to be a part of the movement that is bringing manufacturing back to the United States. It feels right to be here in Richmond, to connect to the city’s rich history of industry and manufacturing.  We are committed to being as socially and environmentally responsible as possible.

Recently Jered's Pottery designed and handmade—right here in Richmond—an exclusive line of dinnerware for Restoration Hardware, The Wheeler Collection. We also created custom dinnerware for countless restaurants in the Bay Area and beyond including Michael Mina, COI, Michael Chiarello's Coquetta, Rich Table, Spoonbar, and Madrona Manor.

We learned that our clients love to watch our potter, Jered Nelson, and our team of skilled artisans at work. We opened our doors last week. We are excited to be so close to the Bay Trail, the Rosie the Riveter Museum, and the Craneway Pavilion. Starting this week, studio tours will be held every Wednesday and Saturday morning at 11am.

Next week we will launch our new dinnerware collection, The California Line, as well as our online shopping cart. The California Line is the culmination of Jered’s work over the last five years for many celebrated chefs. He took the best pieces, refined them, and put them together in a cohesive collection that uses angles to create shadow play. One of our favorites in this line is the Richmond Cup, an iconic piece named for our new home. 

We are very excited to become a part of this wonderful community. We will host many artistic and culinary events, including a free literary series called Poetry at the Pottery that features local and visiting writers. The first reading in our Richmond space will be on Saturday, August 8th, at 7pm, featuring Terry Lucas and Tayve Neese.

Our regular store hours are Monday-Saturday, 10 am-6 pm.

    I’m Richie Jack from CANADA I really want to tell the whole world what Dr Akereco greatest spell caster done for me this’s tears of joy. My wife left for USA last six months and there after she refused to come home i called and i called and she persisted then instantly i new something was wrong somewhere i searched for helped from the vertical to horizontal and yet to no avail. I cried and cried but she was not gonna come back to me. on 8th of January 2018 i picked up my computer to get suggestions form anywhere that i can, then i came across his email I email him but to say the fact though i wanted to do anything to have my wife back i still have doubt that this couldn’t work cause i don’t believe in superstition. The reply i got was striking that my wife had been spellbound by another man. i screamed help but he said not worry. this is what i should do and i did. to my greatest surprise 48 hours time on 10th of January my wife called and she was crying to me and not knowing what to do i bust into tears too but of joy. so i will use this medium to urge every single soul with problem of any kind try and contact him Again his email

    It’s great to have Jered right next door. His studio is most welcome in our small but growing arts community. The arts have the ability change and vitalize an area and the City has been most supportive since we moved here in 1997. We love this town!
