Announcement   I love to create! I have always been a creator of random crafts and some things you might consider art. Now I am a trained potter and love that too! My artistic style is colorful yet traditional. Functional and original. I enjoy making pottery but I also like to paint, build, caricature, and experiment with yarn crafts..... haven't mastered any of those yet!

About

On the road in a bus full of pottery and dogs, living the dream.

In the beginning, there were two people, two dogs, and a dream. The dream sprouted from desire and longing, to go places and see things, experience life and people.

In 2010, we built a house, worked, went to school, and married. In 2012 I graduated with a degree in professional clay and founded Lowder Pottery, just as we realized we no longer wanted to live in our fresh new house.

I continued with my bachelor's degree in studio art, and we started to formulate a plan to be able to travel and work and live and have fun together. So we built a bus.

I graduated in 2014 and we hit the road for Utah. We've lived in the bus ever since. The first two years I carried my wheel and kiln with us, and made pots in my spare time off from park rangering. Now I make my years worth of stock and carry a variety with me to sell on etsy. In the fall my husband Bryan and I sell at pottery and art shows. He is getting into leatherwork, and can be found under the shop name Lowder Leather.

In 2013 I was a resident artist at Sanbao Ceramic Institute in Jingdezhen China. I have done shows and sold pottery across the United States.

We love to travel nationally and internationally with our two dogs Leo and Ginger.

If you have any questions or comments about our lifestyle, pottery, leather, or how to convert a school bus into an RV just send me a convo message and we can chat!
