My Story

From Humble Beginnings to a Pottery Haven

 

My journey began as a small pottery corner in my house, fueled by a passion for clay and creativity. With just a bag of clay and basic tools, I dedicated myself to mastering the craft and sharing my love for ceramics with the community. Over time, my commitment to quality and artistic expression resonated with fellow pottery enthusiasts, and my little space in the house began to grow.

My reputation flourished, I expanded to a larger location, allowing us to offer a variety of pottery classes for all skill levels. My hands-on workshops quickly became a cornerstone of Fatclay Pottery, fostering a vibrant community of learners and artists eager to explore the art of pottery.

Today, I’m  proud to run not only a thriving pottery studio and class/open access program but also a beautiful gallery that showcases the incredible work of local artisans. The gallery is a testament to the talent and creativity within our community, featuring a diverse collection of handmade ceramics that inspire and delight.

Join me at Fatclay Pottery and be part of my ongoing story—whether you're taking a class, browsing our gallery, or simply enjoying the company of fellow art lovers.
