With an aversion to the excess of mass-produced goods, Lisa Jones formed Pigeon Toe in the winter of 2008, fresh out of college, with a vision to create uniquely beautiful objects that incorporate and celebrate the extensive history of American handcrafts and manufacturing. As creative director / dabbler-in-chief, Lisa aspires to find fresh perspective through innovative material combinations, harking back to an era where artisans not only create, but inspire.
In 2014 Pigeon Toe became sibling-owned in addition to female-owned, with Lisa's sister Samantha leaving a decade in corporate business development to join Pigeon Toe as co-owner, sales director, and chief Instagram Story Officer. Together, the two of them have hoisted the freak flag high and proud, producing vibrant and delightful pottery from their studio in Portland.
We are Pigeon Toe
Pigeon Toe is a new perspective on the beauty inherent in every day. We explore the aesthetic potential of objects that populate and create our lives; we accentuate function and redefine form. Each piece that leaves our north Portland studio is alive with the joy and vision of its makers, the result of a process that begins with imagination and insight, takes shape through skilled hands, and is fulfilled by you. You will know a Pigeon Toe piece by its purpose, you will remember it for its presence, and you will love it for what it transcends.
