On Etsy since 2016

Welcome to my shop! Thanks for stopping by. My name is Teresa Thompson (Hoelsworth). I am a full-time art therapist, and part-time ceramics instructor and potter. My husband, Nick, and I have lived in Chicago, IL since 2012. I fell in love with ceramics in 2004 and continue to develop as an artist every day. I have traveled to and lived in many cultures and each of these experiences have influenced my style and identity as an artist. I often adapt to use the resources that are available in my area, including access to clay, glazes, kiln, and firing processes. I have intentionally chosen this approach to reflect stages in life.

Each individual piece is handcrafted and created considering form and function.
I love when people are able to use my pieces in everyday life. I believe that interacting with art every day helps individuals appreciate the mundane, take a moment, and appreciate small things.

I hope you enjoy my shop. Please contact me for more information about custom order. I can design and hand make almost anything. I hope to hear from you soon!
