I spent time searching for a thoughtful gift for my guests that are attending my wedding in December. I stumbled across Melissa with MissPottery and I can honestly say that the mugs are beautiful. Melissa is extremely kind and wants each item to turn out as you envision. I am thrilled to present these mugs at the wedding to my guests! Melissa helped to make our wedding a little more special by crafting these for us. Thank you, Melissa - I truly love them!
The Shop of Miss Pottery
I fell in love with pottery the first day I touched clay and have never looked back.
I hope you enjoy my shop and visit often. There is always something new or different here to see.
My clay story began more than 18 years ago. The first time I walked into a pottery class and watched a master potter throw on the wheel, I fell in love with clay and everything about the process of creating pottery. My first instructor was very gifted but she also made all of her students feel like they could throw on the wheel too. (Hi Pauline!!!)
I never questioned that I would be able to throw, I just did it! Sure, it took a while but I loved working with clay so much that I was happy every time I had a chance to go to the studio and improve. I would count down the days to my next class. There is nothing like the joy of watching your clay pieces move through the stages. Throwing, trimming, bisque firing, glazing and glaze firing and then the anticipation of seeing the final result. Every class was like Christmas morning for me.
Finally, I moved on from the community class studio setting when I purchased a kiln from my instructor and started my own studio where I've been making and firing my own work ever since. Everything in my MissPottery shop has been created in my studio either on the wheel or by hand building. I also glaze and fire each item myself.
I enjoy making pieces that are functional, touchable, colorful and whimsical as well as lovely to have on display.
How did my shop get it's name? My husband nicknamed me Little Miss Pottery many years ago and suggested I use it when I first opened my etsy shop in 2007.
