The blue and white bathroom set is even prettier in person. It's very helpful in keeping my bathroom vanity neat and tidy. Great craftsmanship!
I wanted to call my shop Clay Therapy because it marries my previous life with my current one. BC (before children) I was a therapist. I worked with addicts and domestic violence victims and children at different points in my career. I loved using some art therapy in group therapy. I quit working in 2007 to become a stay at home mom. As my children got older and started elementary school, I finally had a little bit of time for me again. I did not wish to return to my former job in mental health at this time. I started playing in clay and love it. It allowed me to find a piece of myself again after years of being "just" a mom. So it was therapeutic for me as well as fun. But I feared Clay Therapy was too cutesy a name so I went simple and used my own name for my shop. Working with clay feels akin to a superpower. I take mud and with my hands and a lot of heat from a kiln, I make something beautiful and useful from it. It still amazes and delights me when I open a glaze kiln load and see all of the beautiful colors and shapes created from mud. And little makes me happier than seeing someone use items I make and enjoy them.
I am a wife, mother of 2, former social worker and therapist, current part time potter. I'm a former northerner trying to get navigate the south. I do love the mild winters!

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders
I don't currently take custom orders. If there is something you'd like to see (a mug similar to one listed but in a different color for example) please convo me and I'll put it on my "To Make" list and when I list it, I'll give you first chance to buy it if you like the item. If not, I will put it in the shop for others to purchase - that way there is no obligation.
All of my pieces are food safe unless otherwise noted. And yes, you can put all of them in the dishwasher. I feel obligated to say handmade pieces will last longer if you hand wash them. But I make pottery to use and enjoy. I put all of my own pieces in the dishwasher. Most of my personal mugs go through the dishwasher several times a week. And yes, you can put them in the microwave but some of the glazes might get hot so please be careful when removing. And yes, they are oven safe too. DO NOT PUT ON A HOT STOVE BURNER.
