Karen Winograde has been making pottery in the Napa Valley since 1975. In 1983 Karen began salt glazing and has developed a distinctive expression, creating pieces concerned primarily with cooking, food, floral and garden presentation. In addition to her salt glazed work, Karen also makes some pit-fired pieces and built her own wood-firing kiln in December 2000.
Karen shows her work in Bay Area galleries and shops and at invitational and juried shows around the world. Her kitchen and tableware can be seen in a number of magazines and have been photographed for cook books. On this website you can view examples of the pottery. The work is made in limited series; however, each piece in the series is unique.
Studio visits are available at any time by appointment. It is also open for scheduled and casual Open Studio weekends. You can sign up on the Contact page to receive email notification of Studio Sales and other events, and find a map to the Studio.
