About

Finding Clay

When clay and I met, it was love at first touch. My very first pieces were crafted at the Burbank Art Center, Burbank, C.A. I loved throwing so much that before long, I had more pots than I knew what to do with. To clear some space, I participated in a couple of local group sales. Then I discovered Etsy. I felt really intimidated when I first opened my shop in 2007. By that time I desperately wanted ceramics to become my career, and over the next year, I spent all my free time making and selling as much pottery as I could. In 2008 I did it! Alina Hayes Ceramics became my official full-time job.

What can I say? Ceramics is what I love to do.
I pour my heart and soul into each and every piece I make from start to finish. It never gets tiresome or boring. I always dream up new ideas and experiment with new techniques and glazes. Even as I write this, I can feel my face light up.
My work is always evolving, creating an ever-changing look in my shop. I love fashion, and often times have seasonal trends sneak into my pottery.

I enjoy working with white stoneware and porcelain that I glaze and fire in an electric kiln to 2240 degrees F. I make most of my glazes in house, with only a couple that I purchase from a ceramic supplier.

    I started making ceramics in 2006, after my husband and I moved to Los Angeles. Four years ago, I was lucky enough to quit my day job and start creating pottery in my small messy studio full-time. We currently reside in West Hills with our son Finn.
