Nice assortment of tiny pottery bowls, with lovely dark orange and tan glazes - useful for any number of purposes, such as holding jewelry, or spices for cooking prep. Bowls were received very quickly, and packaged very safely.... A++++ Thank you!!

About

Obsession

This shop is proof that it only takes one class to become addicted to creating pottery!

Karen began her foray into crafts as a child with many projects in plastic canvas and cross-stitch. In high school, she worked part-time in a fabric store. While employed there, she learned to sew, including prom dresses, numerous baby blankets, and home accessories. She also enjoyed drafting and architecture. Hence, she continued her education at Drexel University earning a bachelor of science in interior design. After graduation, her love of children drove her to earn a masters degree and doctorate of education and become a teacher. For a while, children's crafts kept her love of art alive. Then, she took a pottery class and never stopped throwing, eventually creating a studio in her barn. Making more pieces than she could give away, she began selling her wares for the pleasure of making more. Her work can be found in hundreds of homes throughout the world.

POTTERY CLASS In this class you will learn the techniques for wheel-thrown pottery.
Classes are held once a week on Wednesday or Thursday evening from 7 - 9:30 pm for 8 weeks. Cost is $250 which includes instruction, throwing, glazing and firing. Students purchase 25 pounds of clay for an additional $10 as needed. Sessions begin each January, March, June and September.

PARTIES $25 per potter includes a tour of the studio and throwing demonstration, as well as creation of one hand-built and one wheel-thrown piece by each guest. Pieces are picked up about three weeks later.
