Sundborn Pottery is located east of San Diego in Jamul, California nestled in beautiful Lee Valley surrounded by mountains and next to our grape vineyard.

We specialize in a very high-quality handmade porcelain which is fired to 2400 degrees -- becoming fully vitrified, oven-proof, microwave- and dishwasher-safe, and completely lead-free.

The potter and artist, Victor Miller, developed the clay and glazes in our studio for exceptional beauty, durability, and chip resistance.  Our porcelain is made to be enjoyed every day.  The simple designs and shapes enhance your food and drink adding years of special enjoyment to every meal.  

Because each piece is made one by one on a potter’s wheel you will see unique differences but still consistency and uniformity in every set so your mugs and dinnerware stack nicely on your shelf.  The uniform “stack-ability” and comfortable, ergonomic designs comes from the years of experience and skill of the potter.

"Remember, for that first cup in the morning, the mug is just as important as the coffee."

Frequently-Asked Questions

Can I see samples before I buy?
We can send sample pieces to you so that you can try them out at home, compare them with other pieces you already have and see how the colors look in your own environment. Email victor@sundbornpottery.com.

How true are the colors on the website?
Since color varies from monitor to monitor, the best way to make sure the color is fits in your home is to request a sample (see above).

What is the difference between porcelain and other ceramics?
Porcelain is a fine, dense clay that is fired at a high temperature, making it much more rugged and chip-resistant than low-fire ceramics and finer and lighter in weight than stoneware. Porcelain is the most durable of any clay, and is non-porous, making it food-, microwave-, dishwasher-, and oven-safe.
