Thank you Tammy Jo for allowing us to follow and learn from you while you journey through the world of ceramics. You inspire so many with your YouTube videos and books.

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"!
