I was raised on a farm and have fond memories of growing up there. I moved out here to Kalispell, Montana in the fall of 1972 and I still miss Minnesota. I knew nothing about pottery or ceramics, I guess I am what you would call a self taught ceramist. I met Jean Hanson in about 1984, she had a pottery and ceramic shop and she taught me a lot about pottery and ceramics, but most of the time I just flew by the seat of my pants, trial and error type stuff. I have won many awards with my altered greenware ceramic pieces. About six years ago I started making pottery burial urns and have sold quite a few to the funeral home here. After I finish writing this web site, I plan on doing more pottery and ceramics and pottery urns to sell on the internet. I have two grandbabies, six and four years old, they ain't babies by any means, but they always will be that to me. I have introduced them to pottery and ceramics and they seem to like it. I get them small pieces of pottery and they paint them. Anyway, I spend as much time with them as I can because they grow up so fast and eventually get friends and then gramma kinda goes by the wayside for a while.

Have you ever come up with a good idea while working with your handmade pottery and thought that you would like to share it with others? You have? Well, why not send it to us and we will add it to the tips page for all to see.

Handmade pottery can be a very gratifying hobby that produces fun and satisfying results. For many people it's an enjoyable release that is created by working an inanimate mound of clay into a beautiful work of art that you made through your artistic abilities.

The best way of starting out is to take a few lessons from Youtube. You will probably waste quite a bit in materials when you first get started. Figuring out how to truly make handmade pottery correctly and shape into what you want it to be can be quite an ordeal. The different tools that a normal shop will have can be fun to try. You will soon see which ones you like to use the most and then when you are ready you will know which ones to buy.

With the help of the internet, you can now purchase most if not all of your ceramic and pottery tools and supplies online. We are located far from any well supplied dealers and yet working with reliable ceramic and pottery suppliers online has allowed us to recieve most of our orders within a timely manner.

When you get all set up, just enjoy the hobby and have fun at it. Some people get pretty serious and start selling their creations at craft fairs and small stores, but others just like to create items for themselves, relatives, and friends. Whichever kind of handmade pottery you desire to endeavor, enjoy the hobby and have fun doing it.
