Eileen Reynolds a potter and ceramist, had her studio and produced works in San Francisco starting in 1943. With the addition of a Denver kiln, production increased and she began working in partnership with her husband, Rossi Reynolds with whom she worked until his death. Reynolds continued with her pottery, marrying her apprentice, Ross Curtis and made pottery until shortley before her death in 1977.

The Curtises were founders of the Sausalito Teahouse Group, a coterie of artists known for their intellectual evenings and gallery shows in a turn-of-the-century Japanese teahouse on a Sausalito hilltop.

Curtis "We strive for unity in foot, lip, body and glaze. If we get that all unified with regard to personal feeling, we have a work of art ... Every so often, we get something which, to us, is especially beautiful."
