As a baby-boomer who cherished making mud pies as a child, I’ve always been fascinated by the process of making hand-made pottery. In 1997 I married an energetic man who enjoyed building golf courses, houses, atmospheric engines, internal combustion engines, and anything in-between. One of the results of this relationship between “builder” and “baby-boomer” has been Homeplace Pottery. My husband Randy encouraged me to begin taking pottery classes and it wasn’t long before he began building the equipment needed for our home studio. Randy quickly discovered he also has a natural talent of making pottery. It’s
been wonderful to have a hobby that we both share and enjoy doing together. We have developed our skills by attending local classes, workshops and spending many hours “playing” in the mud. Since retiring from a career in the title insurance industry, I’m now often found in our Pottery Studio creating wheel-thrown
pottery. In addition, I delight in sharing my joy of clay with others in the Piedmont area of North Carolina. I’m always ready to find a group of children, young or old, who are interested in getting muddy as they create a new work of art! Homeplace Pottery is located in Kernersville, North Carolina and we welcome you to come by and visit with us. We take pleasure in sharing the joys that can be found by playing with clay.
