About

I am originally from central North Carolina where my husband and I raised our three sons. As empty nesters, we decided to downsize and move to the mountains of North Carolina.

My style has evolved into a rustic, southern functional style reminiscent of the surrounding mountains. I also make pottery mushrooms and birdhouses for the garden.

Since moving to Montana, I have been admitted to the Made in Montana program which promotes handmade in Montana. Our brick and mortar shop is also a Made in Montana Shop. You can find us at www.backcreekclay.com or www.backcreekpottery.net.

Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a peek at our products. At certain times of the year, we are limited in our inventory due to demand. We welcome custom orders if you find something on our web site that is not offered on my Etsy site. Just convo me and I will set up a custom listing for you. I may have the product in stock. If not, please allow 4 weeks for completion.

I have two other Etsy shops, Smoky Mountain Vintage at www.smokymountainvintage.etsy.com and Smoky Mountain Kitchen at www.smokymountainkitchen.etsy.com. At Smoky Mountain Vintage, I offer flea market finds and family heirlooms. At Smoky Mountain Kitchen I have family recipes, napkins handmade by me, and various other kitchen items. Stop by and say hello!
