About

Handmade in Makanda, IL - in the heart of the Shawnee Forest!

If you are looking for a bright spot of color to liven up you home, Clay Lick Creek Pottery is the place to be! Each piece of my colorful and distinctive functional pottery is lovingly created one piece at a time in my personal studio nestled in a little corner of the Shawnee Forest in Southern Illinois. I specialize in functional mugs and bowls, both large and small featuring fun critters and eye popping floral designs, all created to put a smile on your face and joy in your day. I use an old glazing technique called Majolica which was developed in Spain and Italy during the 1500s in which I put my own spin to the traditional designs. Pieces are fired twice, once as a bisque to prepare the pottery for glazing and the final glaze fire. All are safe for food use and smaller bowls and mugs can be put in the microwave for quick warm ups and top rack of dishwasher for clean up.

Wanting fun pottery for my own use started my journey into Majolica pottery and gradually turned into a business of sharing this vision to the world. Every year styles change as I have different experiences and develop various client given suggestions. My personal mantra is, "Every piece I make belongs to someone, I just need to get the piece and person together." I hope the joy and fun I have creating my pottery brings the same happiness into the homes of the individual who do acquire my work.

Check out my Etsy shop: https://www.etsy.com/shop/ClayLickCreekPottery for smaller pieces to begin your collection, follow me on my Clay Lick Creek Pottery Facebook business page: https://www.facebook.com/ClayLickCreekPottery to see the making of my work and have first dibs on the various pieces fresh from the kiln, or find my Schedule of Events on my web site: http://www.claylickcreekpottery.com/ and meet me in person while perusing a collection of my pottery at a local Art Fair.

I love making fun and unique Majolica pottery guaranteed to put a smile on your face!

All of my pottery is either wheel thrown or hand built and decorated by me in my Makanda, IL pottery studio. No outsourcing is done, period!

    Protector Of The Slab Table

  • Kia

    Usually Black And White

    Kia is a border collie/terrier mix that I rescued many years ago. As long as she stays out of the studio, she remains black and white---the red clay will make her black and pink.

  • Ziggy

    Guard Dog At Your Service

    Ziggy is another rescues mix dog. He followed a group of horseback riders and took an exit at my husband's friend's house...a few days later, the DH brought the 9 month old pup home, with the words, "can we keep him?"
