Bella Joy Pottery focuses on celebrating the routine, the everyday, your real life. Why save your favorite porcelain for holidays? Bella Joy Pottery is meant to be used for daily rituals-drinking coffee, eating lunch, savoring dessert. Frivolous? Not at all! Life is better when you enjoy the small things.
Bella Joy Pottery was started in 2006 and has undergone numerous transformations. The current line was established in January 2012. I develop my own original clay prototypes on a potters wheel, fabricate plaster molds to mimic my originals, and form vessels in my molds with liquid porcelain. Each piece is created, finished, and glazed by hand. My porcelain vessels are created in a former chicken coop in Plainwell, MI, which is between Chicago and Detroit.
I am inspired by the juxtaposition between urban and rural life. With the prevalence of the farm to table movement, this symbiotic relationship is flourishing.
Owner, Creator, Designer
Before the beginning of my sophomore year of college my dad sat me down and advised me to do what I loved. (What a good guy!) I went to the registrars office and changed all my courses for the fall. Looking back, it was the correct decision.
Glaze Maker, Book Keeper, Business Mentor
Fritz is a retired hospital CEO whose precision really pays off when it comes to making glazing for Bella Joy Pottery. He also does book work for the studio and loves to give business suggestions when asked. He is also Heidi's dad. :)
