Michelle Zinanti officially launched Harvest Pottery in 2011. Harvest Pottery is a distinctive new version of handmade pottery utilizing pumpkin, melons, and squash to make each piece unique. Zinanti explains, “The Harvest Pottery studio celebrates pumpkin, melon and squash by smoothing clay around their inviting shapes. Each piece has an inviting organic quality that you can enjoy at your table year round. My objective is to make pottery worthy of the harvest – to create organic art that communicates abundance and the patience for ripening."

“The SBDC is a critical piece in the growth of my business. I am grateful for the assistance they have provided along the way and excited for the many new opportunities ahead.”
