Geff Reed and Sarah MacFarlane collaborate on a line of either wheel-thrown or handbuilt stoneware functional ware. 

They produced a wide range of forms including goblets, plates and covered jars finished with underglazes and clear overglaze. The work is often decorated with exotic animals and vegetation; incising the outline of underglaze patterns is added to sharpen the images.

Both Reed and MacFarlane also work independently on their own ceramic work.
