I bought one of these mugs as a gift when I was visiting Austin and loved it so much that when I got home I reached out to Joy online to see if she had any more available. She didn't at the time, but promised to reserve one for me as soon as it was finished. The ordering process went smoothly and the mug arrived in perfect condition. Highly recommend!

Painting glazes on the owl mug.
This shows part of the glazing process before the mug is fully glazed and the owl is added.


Ceramic artist seeks to spread happiness one mug at a time!

The feeling you get when something in your life is truly enjoyed- when you honestly derive happiness from an object or experience- that is what motivates me. I create handmade, one of a kind objects that will bring a smile to your face.

I grew up in west Texas, the daughter of a rancher. My life was full of nature - flora and fauna - the subjects I still love today. Walking along creek beds and observing rocks and nature are still my favorite pastimes!

After earning two art degrees, starting a family, and moving across the country and back, I've decided to focus on creating ceramics that celebrate happiness!
