Handmade Pottery

Since August of 2018, Matt & I have been on a whirlwind ride of making our handmade pottery! I had taken many pottery classes in college and loved it. After graduation however, it became difficult. Creating functional pottery requires some pretty expensive and specialized equipment which was not do-able for a fresh out of college youngster. My life soon became full of working a career and then having children. While I still created artwork-paintings, I longed to get back on the pottery wheel.

After I became an art educator and advocating for eight years to get a kiln at my school, the world of pottery began to open back up for me. We then got pottery wheels for my school and this is where my love and drive to create in clay started to intensify.

In August, God provided an amazing opportunity for us to get a kiln for our home at an incredible deal! His amazing provision has enabled us to begin our own pottery business from home! Within a few weeks, we purchased a pottery wheel and have been steadily using it. Matt jumped in and learned to “throw” pottery as well! Kayleigh our daughter, has also been “throwing” rice bowls and various other items. The Lord seems to be blessing this endeavor and we are grateful for the HUGE support from family and friends!
