On Etsy since 2010

Magic is alive and well.

So why not let a little into your life? I'm Teri, the Clay Maiden. Nice to meet you. Yes, I believe in fairies.

I also believe that the little things make a home. It is why I do what I do. Growing up my mom taught me to do all kinds of crafts. It wasn't until high school that I discovered clay but by then I had an over active creative drive and the two meshed perfectly. I love art and I put a lot of myself into it.

I surround myself with things that I love, no matter where I am. Whether it's the owl statue on my work desk, the rose oil diffuser in my car window, or the Mushroom house oil warmer on my kitchen counter. They make me smile, they make me think of forests filled with magical beings and it makes me happy. More than anything that is what I want to share with people; that warm and fuzzy feeling.

I am still a child at heart and I approach everything I make with the same light hearted whimsy. It is a defining theme of my work. I make things that I would want to buy. I am also a purist. I do not use any molds or stamps. Every item I make, every detail is done by hand from its initial inception to the final glazing. Every product is unique and no two items will ever be the same.

    Clay is my passion, something I have loved from the moment I touched it. You have to get a little dirty, but the rewards are endless. I am proud to say I play with mud for a living :)
