About

EXPRESSives! Expressing Inspiration with Positive Purpose Pottery

"From a small seed a mighty trunk may grow.” Aeschylus

EXPRESSives® is an inspirational line of ceramics sharing essential “seeds” of strength, wisdom and faith. Hand crafted in the studio of artist Tammy Jo Schoppet (YouTube’s “Hobby Potter), each unique piece is creatively infused with a meaningful message for both giver and receiver.

Functional pottery with a greater purpose! Each piece is a creative expression for building self esteem, uplifting a friend or surrounding yourself with words that strengthen faith or encourages healing.

Words are the SEEDS that take root in our hearts. ~ Sow What you Want to Grow!~

ABOUT THE MAKER
“3000 year old fingerprints in pottery began my journey in clay!” As a teenager working at the Egyptian Museum in San Jose, CA. I became fascinated with these “nameless people” who used the earth to make such a permanent impression in time. It was this moment tucked away in my heart as something that should be explored. 25 Years later, as a home educating mother of four who was recovering from a serious illness, I was prescribed to “relax and get a hobby”. It was the memory of “fingerprints” that brought my life full circle back to pottery and God’s chosen tool for healing.

In 2011 I began learning about making pottery in earnest by creating a cup, a day for the entire year. I shared this learning process through daily YouTube videos and on December 31,2011 I opened my kiln to the 365th cup! This led to my first gallery exhibition and continue to share my love of clay online and through various venues and events. 5 years after my cup project I had the opportunity to publish a book “365 Days of Clay Cups, A Cup - A Day - A Year” about the journey (thru Amazon.com). I’m always grateful to those who follow my work and continually encourage me to grow and move forward in pottery making.

My desire is to infuse all the excitement and joy I’ve been blessed with into creating inspirational and encouraging ceramic pieces! I believe we were ALL created for a greater purpose … and that’s what I hope comes through in each piece that leaves my studio.
It’s not just a “cup” or a “bowl”, it’s our own fingerprints in time!
