Announcement   Welcome to my online ceramic shop! My name is Tammy Jo Schoppet, YouTube's "Hobby Potter" and ceramic artist!

My studio time is filled with spontaneous, intuitive creativity that embraces a "Perfectly Imperfect" aesthetic...wabi sabi, organic or natural. I love finding the beauty in the imperfections! This means I rarely make the same thing twice, so I don't guarantee an item you love today will be available again tomorrow!

Orders are packed with care and shipped within 24 hours of clearing funds (excluding weekends & holidays, or if otherwise stated in the product description).

Please feel free to send a convo if you have any questions and I'll be happy to assist!

Thank you for coming by and I hope you find something that inspires you!

This handmade bowl is now a family heirloom. Not only is it well made, but the sentiments written on it are life reminders. Beautifully packaged; what a wonderful woman who makes these pieces. You cannot go wrong purchasing from Tammy Jo.

About

"Hobby Potter" - Making & Selling Pottery For the Joy Of It!

hob·by / noun
1. an activity done regularly for entertainment, joy or pleasure.

Creativity In My Own Way...At My Own Pace
From the creation to the selling, every aspect of pottery making thrills me! I do take my ceramic work seriously, and enjoy the hard work and element of the unknown. The term "hobby" carries a warmth and lightness that helps me to spontaneously be creative. It's the core reason I work in clay....creativity at my own pace, in my own way.

Freedom to pursue what moves me, and also to play with ever changing ideas that inspire me, means I am not the "production" style potter. Fresh new ideas keep the pieces infused with the enthusiasm I feel while making it.

My Aesthetic
"Perfectly Imperfect"! The love of a perfect form inter-mingled with different organic imperfections is what I hope to convey throughout my work. There is beauty in perfection, but imperfection adds that uniqueness and charm! These two elements combined are the ingredients that speak to me… it’s human, it’s real and it’s always diverse.

My Beginnings & History in Clay
As a teen I worked at the Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum in San Jose, CA. I became completely absorbed in the pottery as I noticed the fingerprints of ancient potters thousands of years before me. 25 years later, when I became seriously ill, I was instructed to begin a hobby for relaxation and healing. That hobby had to be pottery!

In 2011 I started the YouTube video series, “365 Days of Clay Cups”, sharing my ceramic adventures online as I learned to throw on the pottery wheel. In 2016, to celebrate the 5 year anniversary of the project, I published the entire journey for Amazon in a book,“365 Days of Clay Cups” A Cup – A Day – A Year. I love sharing my explorations in clay and sharing my learning journeys through the YouTube projects. Yes, I will always be a "Hobby Potter"!
