“For as long as I remember, my favorite pastime was to create with my hands. I started selling my handcrafts at the age of 13, going home every day and making more product to sell……school work was not a priority.

“I’m a producer of earthenware pottery and I’ve been doing it for 35 years. I have a great relationship with color. That’s why I enjoy working on a white background, and earthenware gives the brightest colors. Over the years my work has become more and more decorative, and the colors are more popular now. I like making pots for people to use. I work with kids and adults in my teaching studio. I conduct classes and summer clay camps here so it’s an active place and a nice little community of clay people.

Behind the Roast at The Roasterie

Roasterie, SBC, Seattle's Best Coffee, historical museum

Did you know that the “Master Roaster” at The Vashon Island Coffee Roasterie has been roasting beans on Vashon for over 30 years? Over 30 years ago, Master Roaster, Peter Larsen arrived from Germany with the hopes of putting his extensive knowledge of coffee roasting to good use. A fourth generation roaster who grew up around and apprenticed within the exacting German coffee industry, Peter was quickly discovered by Jim Stewart, founder of Seattle’s Best Coffee, joining him on Vashon at what is now The Vashon Island Coffee Roasterie.

Peter’s experience was the perfect accompaniment to Jim’s desire to introduce Northern European style coffee roasting to the United States and improve the quality of coffee available in this country.  Little did Peter know he would become a key part of a significant era of coffee history: helping to create the specialty coffee industry, establishing Seattle as the capital of today’s worldwide coffee phenomenon and putting our little Vashon on the coffee map in a big way.
