The Brick Piggy

The pandemic has been really fun, right? My position was eliminated in April and I stopped working. I was both happy as I'd wanted out for awhile, but also sad. I was saying goodbye to people I really loved and enjoyed hanging out with, I was leaving the comfort of a job and an office, and I had no idea what the eff I was going to do next.

I first played with clay in a college ceramics class. I was awful but I loved it. After college I was fortunate enough to work at the Worcester Center for Crafts and take ceramics courses there. I got better and still loved it! A few years later I took a couple of classes in Brooklyn and continued to get better and fall deeper in love. Unfortunately that was the end of my pottery journey for awhile...

Fast forward about 8 years and here I am in the middle of a pandemic, with no job, no hobbies, and extreme amounts of boredom. The world was slowly opening back up and fortunately pottery studios were too. I signed up for a class and the skills came back immediately. I'm still a bit rusty, but I am having so much fun trying new techniques, really getting to play with glaze, and challenging myself to move beyond the mug (I will still make mugs). I want to share my creations with anyone who appreciates that sort of thing and likes having practical items in their home that are also super cute!

So thank you for coming to Brick Piggy*. If you made a purchase, thank you for supporting me on this journey. I appreciate you! If you just browsed and might come back, I hope you do! If you're not seeing exactly what you want, let's have a conversation.


*Why the name Brick Piggy? Short answer: my daughter Ro went through a phase where she really, really loved The Three Little Pigs. We would read a lot of versions of the story and watch cartoons and we always identified the pigs by the material they used for their home. When thinking of a name for my shop, I wanted something that was a nod to Ro, but also clay-adjacent. Brick Piggy felt right.
