pottery | fall

Honestly, I am stoked out of my mind to share these images with you. I've been awkwardly smiling to myself all day about it. 

For me, working with clay is a sacred experience. I fell in love with clay by accident. During my senior year of undergrad, I signed up for ceramics as an elective credit. Within the first few days of that semester, I was hooked. My former professor (shoutout to Don Sprague!) still likes to remind me of the time I stubbornly told him, "I will throw a mug today," and proceeded to run through 25lbs of clay that same day. The whole process - from centering, to shaping, to trimming, to glazing - amazed me. In the studio, I felt safe. Using my hands to shape clay into something beautiful and usable taught me more about theology than anything I've heard in church or a Bible class. It truly feels like an honor for me to work at the wheel, shape a vessel, and share it with another. 

These pieces are kind of my babies + the launching pad for my new ceramics biz. They're what I've been creating during my lunch breaks at work throughout the last few months. I think they represent what I love in clay work pretty well: funky shapes, earthy/neutral colors, life (plants), texture. I won't be taking on commissions until late January, but I am so happy to be sharing these now. If you're interested in making a commission, feel free to start brainstorming!

Below is a custom-order yarn bowl. It's a great way to keep your yarn untangled as you knit!
