Thom and Kim Norby

This beautifully decorated porcelain is hand-thrown on a potter's wheel by Kim Norby and individually airbrushed and glazed by her husband, Thom. Their custom designed Mountain Mist pieces are unique - no two are exactly alike. The Norbys have recently introduced an Impressions Line of pottery which duplicates a particular design.

Norby pottery is functional, decorative, and collectible. All pieces are handcrafted and all wildlife and landscape designs are original. All pieces are fired to over 2300 degrees and are lead-free and safe for use with all foods. They can be used as serving dishes, in the oven, microwave, or dishwasher.
