mini shop update end of june!
As I ease back into making it is important to me that I am able to take it slow. Because of this I have canceled or postponed my June orders, giving myself the space and time I need to make sure I don’t push my hand too hard. You can expect mugs, budvases, and an assortment of small dishes with some surprise new wares as well! I will be doing as much experimenting as my hand will allow these next two weeks.
Whats Been Happening?
I have been dealing with some hand muscle and tendon issues for about a month now, I slowed work down significantly and have been to a number of Doctors, Physical Therapist and Specialist. Unfortunately the issue has only gotten worse, as I have been pushing to finish preexisting orders this past month. Everything I do with my hand causes me some kind of pain. I am so sad and disappointed to announce that the online shop production has been canceled for this month.
Want To Help?
Mortar and Stone is my full time Job, and if I am not making it also means I am not getting paid… If you would like to help out financially to get me though this hard/discouraging season, I’ve placed a “donate” button below. every cent that gets donated will go directly to rent/bills and food. Thank you for your support and encouragement!

How the online shop works
I launch quarterly
Producing for months at a time gives me the creative freedom to make mistakes and experiment with material, form and color. It is a privilege to be able to produce work that I really do enjoy, this only happens through days in the studio where I can afford to make many mistakes. Every time you purchase a piece off my online shop you enable me to continue forth with this creative process, you encourage me and at the end of the day keep my hands making!
Spring Online Shop coming March 2019!
However; I can only make so much work even in a few months, packaging and running to the post office pulls me out of the studio more than you think it would. So keeping the shop up for a month concentrates all this, and gives me time to produce and invest in other companies(which I equally love)
Just a few of the brands I am and have worked with.

having a hard time getting ahold of me?
If it has been more than a week since I have replied to you never hesitate to send another email, I'm the one running this one-man-band and sometimes things get messy.
Here’s a little more about the company!
Based in Aurora Colorado, Mortar and Stone is located in Jubilee Roasting Company. So come get some great coffee and hang out, I’d love to meet you!
Why the name?
Mortar, holds things together,
Stone in the English definition is
‘Sediment shaped for a purpose’
Some of the most intentional conversations often happen over a cup of coffee or a meal. The importance of good design has driven me to the pursuit of making intentionally designed goods for people’s homes.
Erin Pattullo is behind the making at Mortar and Stone, from the ceramics themselves, to the website, instagram, photography, shipping, and every little thing in between.
