Echo Park Pottery is a small cottage pottery studio in Los Angeles. Led by Peter Shire the studio was born out of Shire's experiment in making sculptural tea pots in the early 70’s. Building pieces in traditional hand rolled slab construction, the unique splatter glazes began when Shire, unsure of what glaze to make, began to splatter colors with lots of extra color glazes on hand.

Born in Echo Park LA, where he still resides, Peter Shire has had an impressive career. A part of the original Memphis Design group led by Ettore Sottsass in the 80’s, Shire has shown work in the form of sculptures, furniture and drawings around the world including Milan, Paris, Tokyo and Sapporo.
