Hand-built funky and functional ceramics for your home and garden.

Hi, my name is Amy and I run Tumbleweed Studio.

I work out of my home studio which is nestled at the base of Longs Peak, CO and surrounded by a flock of chickens, 2 dogs, 3 cats and 3 great kids. I am blessed with plenty of space to spread out and make, nooked in next to the wood stove and an old record player.

I am a hand builder so all of my ceramic work is truly one of a kind. I use a variety of techniques when making pottery including: Slab-rolling, pinching, hand-rolling, hump/slump molds, carving, stamping and more. It's not uncommon to find a fingerprint or some other trace of the making process in my finished work. I think this adds to its Bohemian appeal and helps bring connection between the maker and the user of the object.

I grew up in a junk yard where I passed the hours by scavenging through the junk for treasures and painting any surface I could get my hands on. I still enjoy scavenging for vintage items that I can incorporate into my work in new and re-imagined ways. The inspiration for my creations comes from funky found objects, rusty old patinas, my children's story books and the greatest muse herself, Mother Nature.

All of my functional goods are food safe, dishwasher and microwave friendly. They are meant to be used and enjoyed daily, to add some color, inspiration and hand-made to the everyday.

Thank you for checking out my shop and reading my story, Cheers!
