About NerdyDogCeramics

On Etsy since 2019

Just a girl who really loves animals and art!

I have been obsessed with art and nature since i was an afro in diapers. I did a lot of drawing and painting as a kid, but it wasn’t until high school that I was introduced to clay. I was instantly hooked and took ceramics all four years of high school. Even with all the love I had found playing in the mud, I did not do much with clay again until my mid thirties when I decided to pursue an art degree at my local community college. I took two semesters of ceramics before I decided I’d take the leap and set up my own home studio. Being a huge dog nerd, I offered to make a few custom pet mugs for some friends in the hope of finding my niche in the ceramics community. This immediately took off and I have been happily sculpting little pets on mugs ever since!
I absolutely adore making pet mugs. When I considered what ceramics could do both for me and the people I wanted to serve, the idea of pets mugs was easy to come up with because the whole thing just sounded so fun and fulfilling. I really love the functionality ceramics represents in art. Yes, paintings are wonderful but it’s nice to be able to use your creations too. Adding a pet makes the mugs much more personal. I get jazzed whenever I get to bring these elements of art, functionality, and personalization together into one piece. I get little anime heart eyes anytime I get photos of a requested pet. They are all so unique and beautiful. It’s truly an honor to be apart of making these pieces.
Every so often I get these random little ideas in my head, and sometimes those ideas become mugs, bowls, or planters. Lots of those ideas involve animals too. What can I say, this girl is obsessed with nature. I’d say that my second favorite thing on earth besides animals, is the holidays. I look forward to making a lot of spooky items for Halloween (my all time favorite) and a few for Christmas, which is a close second. All in all, the shop is a big reflection of who I am, an animal lover, little bit of a witch, and really someone who doesn’t take themselves or this crazy planet too seriously. Cheers.

    For as long as I can recall I have always adored two things: animals and art. I am honored and excited to do all pet commissions, and try to throw in some of my own unique ideas when I can.
