I’m in week six of my eight week hand building ceramics class at a local studio and I’m very inspired by what I’ve learned. I’ve studied different kinds of clay, different methods for construction, as well as the kiln and glazing processes. I have a new appreciation for the medium and how much time and talent goes into making functional and sculptural pottery. My next class will be all about how to throw on the wheel, I’m excited to learn that technique.
Lately I’ve discovered some skilled artists that I wanted to introduce you to, ones you may not be aware of. Take a peek at their portfolios and online shops and consider them as sources for gifts for this upcoming holiday season. Each has their own unique style, I’m sure you’ll want to bookmark/pin a few favorites.

If you know of or shop from any skilled ceramic artists please share them in the comments, I’m always looking to discover new sources and inspiration!
Morgan Williamson is a friend of my daughter and is a talented ceramicist out of Nashville. I believe she has unique Christmas ornaments every year and darling baby mobiles.
My friend Melissa Henshaw started an online shop this past year. I love her desert themed pottery. https://melissahenshawceramics.com/
