On rainy days, we make pots 🌧

I’ll be open in the studio for normal hours today! You can catch me sipping on a warm cup of coffee from @bluecuproastery, listening to the rain sing against the metal roof of @designworxwilmington, and glazing some pots. What’s your favorite thing to do when it’s raining?

Looking for a cozy new fit for autumn? Then check out @bluecuproastery’s new merch! I just snagged this super comfy hoodie, and you’ll absolutely see me throwing in it at the studio once it cools down.

While you’re there, snag one of my handmade travel mugs and try my lil bookworm twist on their iced matcha: just add some of their apple cinnamon tea and milk of your choice 😋

(This is not sponsored—I just genuinely love them and their offerings 🥰)

Can you spot the new @speedball_ceramics wheel in there? 👀

Thanks to the awesome folks at @claykingceramics (my absolute favorite ceramic supplies company), we now have 6 student wheels! This means slightly larger wheel classes, including another couples spot for those elusive pottery date nights 😉

Thank you all so much for supporting my studio. Because of you, I can live out my dreams and invest back into our community in meaningful ways. I appreciate you being here SO very much. Thank you for being you 💛

It’s all fun and games until the drills and hydrometers come out 😂

Shout out to @mollymichalski for her help with mixing some glazes yesterday! We’ll soon have 7 new dipping glazes for students to use! Just gotta run some tests first 😉

Autumn dress pockets are for holding travel mugs 🍂

Just wanted to pop on and thank you all SO much for being a part of our recent fundraisers. Because of your support, we were able to donate $400 to @cfliteracy for their Campaign for Literacy, and $800 to @all4catsrescue to help them care for and find furever homes for cats in our area!! 🎉

Thank you so much for being here and for being you. Your light is so needed, and I’m thankful you’re here. Have a wonderful Wednesday 💛

Yesterday was such an incredible day. Our vendors where phenomenal, and I couldn’t believe how many folks passed through our building! It was bustling all day, and I couldn’t be happier.

I’m also matching what we raised for @cfliteracy, so we’re donating $400 to their Campaign for Literacy!! 🎉

From the bottom of my heart, thank you all so much for coming out, participating in the scavenger hunt, and supporting local. You are so very appreciated, and we wouldn’t be able to do this without you 💛

(Now I’m going to unplug and relax for my 25th birthday ✌️)

Introducing one of our newest instructors, my good friend @earthandempathyceramics! Please give her a happy welcome in the comments 🎉

Nicole fell in love with ceramics in high school, but truly began pursuing the medium in 2017. She specializes in minimalist forms, from functional pieces to handmade adornments, and I’m so excited for her insight!

Now that she’s joined us, we can offer more 6-week wheel throwing series classes on Sunday afternoons! We’ll also be able to offer more hand-building workshops in November while I’m off for wedding shenanigans. While you won’t learn under me for those particular classes, I wholeheartedly trust Nicole to provide a wonderful experience for you.

As a reminder, October classes will go live on September 24 at 12pm, so mark your calenders and snag your spot quickly! The wheel throwing classes are always the first to go, so don’t wait!
