Art pottery inspired by the Arts & Crafts Movement
Each unique piece designed and made by
Roycroft Renaissance Artisan
I created Gyldcraft in 2014 upon opening a shop to sell antiques, artist hand made items, and my own art pottery. Later Gyldcraft metamorphosed from “bricks and sticks” to exhibiting in juried shows and and gallery events.
The Gyldcraft logo was designed to emulate the aesthetics of the early 1900’s “Arts & Crafts” or “Craftsman” movements and the Medieval period system of artisan and merchant guilds. The name “Gyldcraft” evolved by merging “guild” with “craft” and changing the spelling of Guild to Gyld because the traditional spelling was already taken on the web!
My original art pottery is all hand made, thrown on the wheel and then altered with natural elements, handles, reshaping, cutouts or other design concepts.
In June of 2019, relocating to Rio Rancho, New Mexico (between Santa Fe and Albuquerque) I now create in my home studio.
Stangl Pottery was previously the Fulper Pottery Company, famous for their “Vasecraft” line of pottery in 1909. I am proud that I first started making pottery in this historic building surrounded by the large and still standing pottery kilns originally used by the Fulper Pottery company.

Pottery was previously sold at various locations in Pennsylvania including Hendrickson’s Furniture (new Stickley furniture seller) and at antique booths Stone House Antique Center (Doylestown, Pa), and Zionsville Antique Center (Zionsville, PA).
Some of my work can still be found at Roycroft Antiques, East Aurora, N.Y.
