About

Handmade Pottery for Mindful Living

Guest House Pottery is a celebration of the specialness of the everyday. My intention is that when you use these handmade items in your home, it helps you more deeply appreciate the present moment.

I am trained as an expressive arts therapist and have had a varied career in counseling, communications, and management. I became obsessed with pottery after a chance class at my local arts center and began Guest House Pottery to share my 'beginner's mind', my love of this art form, and my process of continual learning and experimentation.

I hope you will join me in my journey. On my website, you can read more about my story, follow my blog, and connect with me on social media. I also look forward to learning more about you! Please feel free to chat with me anytime. If you are local and wish to pick up an item, just let me know before you purchase.

The Guest House

This being human is a guest house.
Every morning a new arrival.

A joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes
As an unexpected visitor.

Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they're a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture,
still treat each guest honorably.
He may be clearing you out
for some new delight.

The dark thought, the shame, the malice,
meet them at the door laughing,
and invite them in.

Be grateful for whoever comes,
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond.

Rumi, translation by Coleman Barks
