I have been around handmade crafts my entire life. I practically grew up in my mother’s studio. When I was a baby my playpen was there in her studio. I am now 17, and my mom supervises my Etsy store, but I have my own ideas about what I want to make.
I hand build my pieces from paper patterns and stamps I've made or borrowed from mom. I've just started stamping the words. I keep a list of interesting words and add more every day. The poppies are my personal favorite right now. I've been pressing leaves into clay since I was 8, so this is pretty easy, and I know what leaves will make good impressions in clay. I came up with the idea of using coils with the leaves, and like those bowls a lot, too.
My mom has been making pottery for over 30 years, and she is my mentor. Whenever I am working on a new design, she helps me to make it more…
