About

Crooked Creek Studio

I grew up in rural Mississippi, nurtured in art and all sorts of crafts by my parents and my large extended family. In college I was exposed to clay and the clay captured my heart. However, with no pottery studio available after college, I concentrated on teaching high school art while continuing to dabble in painting, stained glass and knitting.

After a few years of teaching, I became a law enforcement analyst with the US Postal Inspection Service and was assigned to Birmingham AL. By then our children were grown and my husband, Danny, was nearing retirement, so we made the move to AL and I finally was able to set up a pottery studio in our walk-out basement.

I started my business, Crooked Creek Studio, in order to sell my pottery online and at art shows. The name is an homage to my hometown of Pelahatchie, which is an American Indian word meaning “crooked creek”. I most enjoy making functional pieces such as mugs, casserole dishes and yarn bowls. I want my customers to use my pieces in their daily lives and to know the joy of using handmade pottery.

After he retired, my husband, Danny, joined me in the pottery studio. I haven't yet talked him into throwing on the wheel, but he does some hand building and is the official clay-prep guy and all-around handyman. He also creates wonderful art from recycled horseshoes and steel. We feel so blessed to have this chance to work and create together.

    I make decorative and functional pottery. Using clean, simple lines I strive to create forms that are beautiful to look at and a pleasure to use.

  • Danny Ivy

    Assistant, Creator

    Danny is my hubby of 40+ years and assists with many things in the studio such as preparing clay and unloading kilns. He also creates beautiful horseshoe art, which complements my pottery nicely. We really enjoy working in the studio together.
