We can’t get enough of Erich Emmenegger’s bright and colorful pottery! He began creating his pottery in the mid 1980’s, and it’s taken off like wildfire! His signature look, bold colors, geometric patterns and whimsical flowers, is one-of-a-kind and eye-catching, to say the least. We can’t help but stare in awe every time he brings additional pieces to the store. How can one person be so talented, so creative? We don’t know how he does it, but we’re sure glad he is continually inspired to keep creating!


Erich’s work has received numerous “best in show” art awards and his work continues to be featured in galleries and specialty boutiques around the country, including Bella Vita. He keeps our store brimming with his beautiful, whimsical creations so that you too can take home a piece of his pottery, designed to brighten your day.


Erich Emmenegger's "free formed" pieces are truly one-of-a-kind. You can find both large and small free formed pieces in all different colors and styles.


Erich's signature flowers add a touch of elegant whimsy to each of his pieces. The bold colors and textures of the flowers make for eye-catching additions, and set Erich Emmenegger Pottery apart from everyone else.


All of Erich Emmenegger's pottery is food safe (serving only!) and hand washable. Creamer and Sugar sets (shown) make wonderful additions to any kitchen, whether used as decor or part of your morning tea/coffee routine.


With or without flowers, this simple bud vase is a stunning addition to any home. Erich's vases range in shape, size and color but each are beautiful in their own way. Group a few together to make an arrangement all your own.
