As a young wife and mother I got away from my love of ceramic making for several years. Approximately 8 years ago I was told my health would no longer allow me to work as a nurse. With my children grown and now my love of nursing gone, I was heart broken. Ceramics came back into my life.What started out as a recreational affair blossomed into the birth of Just For You Ceramics. Its a family affair. We own 2,000 +molds and they are all vintage.

I love to see liquid slip (mud), poured into a piece of plaster paris turn into a new piece of art; then be a part of giving it color and life. Ceramic Crafting a dieing art. I hope not!!!!
