Santa Fe potters Frank Willett and Luisa Baldinger are well-known ceramic artists living and working in Santa Fe, New Mexico since 1971.
For many years, Frank Willett and Luisa Baldinger owned and operated Santa Fe Pottery on historic Guadalupe Street in Santa Fe. Since selling the gallery in 2003 they have devoted their time to creating their own work and selling it out of the studio and online.
Their pottery studio is located in a lovely rural setting a short distance from the plaza in Santa Fe. Open by appointment, visitors are welcomed to a busy and lively studio where demontrations take place amid lots of easy conversation around pottery, pottery making, and all manner of other interesting subjects.
Stoneware and porcelain pottery, created in their studio in Santa Fe, reflects their concern for classic contemporary ceramic design. Featured is a wide variety of beautiful and superbly crafted functional pottery including bowls, teapots, vases, pitchers and decorative pieces, wheel thrown by Frank and glazed and fired by Luisa.
Hand-built saggar-fired vessels, evocative of ancient pottery dug up in an archeological site chracterize Luisa Baldinger's work. Unique and one-of-a-kind,, they occupy special places in the many homes of folks who've collected her work.
