The Story Behind Big Dog Pots

I came to the world of pottery a little late in life. I had already completed one career and had decided to be at home with my 2 children as a full-time mom. I experienced a loss in my family a number of years ago and that sent me into a new direction in life. For 25 years, I had collected pottery, and my husband encouraged me try making pottery as a means to work through my grieving process.
I have historically not been very "artistic", but I gave it a try.
2020 will mark my 13th year in my new life as a potter, I am for the most part a self-taught artist and have not tired of the journey. If anything, I seem to be more and more interested in refining and enhancing my work.
My husband used to be a home builder, and so when my "hobby" took on a life of it's own, he built a studio for me on our property. In 2012, he expanded my studio with a second structure. In 2013, we purchased an old home on Main Street in Marshall, Virginia, and on March 1, 2014, we opened.
A portion of my proceeds are donated to local animal rescue groups in my hometown.
I am thankful for the support and encouragement I have received over the years, and I am thankful for this journey as I continue to emerge as a pottery artisan.

    I love to work with clay. I create functional pottery and teach classes in my studio in Marshall, Va. When I'm not creating pots, or teaching pottery, I spend my time with my husband, 2 children, 2 dogs, 4 cats, & many friends. Stop by and say hello!
