About the Artist
Isaih Porter is a small-batch studio potter based out of Santa Barbara, in beautiful Southern California. His work is inspired by the ardent coastline and carries a humble reverence for craftspeople of yore. Honing his craft over the past decade, Isaih produces bespoke ceramics that bring often understated excitement and whimsy into your home. From functional objects like everyday bowls or your daily-driver mug, to over-the-top statement pieces like five-gallon pitchers or three-foot tall cookie jars, Isaih creates vessels to be lived amongst and together with.
This vase, that doesn’t hold flowers, is stunning and arresting at the same time. I’m a collector of pottery and this piece was gifted to me. The form and concept make you think deeply about the distinction between function and purpose, and calls you into consideration of the possibility that art for art’s sake is indeed a highest calling and purpose.
I love Isaih's work. This small piece is a perfect example of his abilities as a ceramist. The colors on this particular piece are inspiring me to weave a piece as soon as I can. This is the second one that I bought from him and I love it!
After using this mug for a while I can say it's a near perfect drinking device. The feel of the handle to the amount of liquid it can hold is perfect. Highly recommend.
12oz Mug (June Gloom)
Everything I order was delivered w/o delay and was exactly what I was hoping for.
Thank you Isaiah!
I purchased one of these spoon rests as a gift and was a little sorry to wrap it up and part with it! Fortunately I came back to the site and discovered more in stock, in a choice of colors no less. Beautiful craftsmanship and worthy of the finest kitchen (not to mention super practical!).
Could not be happier. Each order is perfect and looking forward to keep growing my collection!
I love my Purple Sky Mug when I drink the herbal tea at twilight. They are much more beautiful in real and make you smile. I have been envisioning a teapot with the reversed glazes next to them.
I LOVE these cups. The size is perfect for beer/water/tea any fun cocktail. I love the way it feels in my hand.
I purchased several of Isaih’s spoon rests to have on hand for hostess/holiday gifts and they are perfect! I love having an affordable, handmade piece of art to give — far better, more unique, more heartfelt than a bottle of wine or candle.

Could not be happier - beautiful and thoughtful. Highly recommend
Spoon Rest (Green)
You’ll never know how much you will love your spoon rest until you use it. It keeps my kitchen work space clean. And, is beautiful to look at between meals.
Perfect size mug and the handle is nicely fitted to the body. Thank you!
