Alright ladies as promised here is the new artist of the week, I love her items, all of them. Great works of art.
Sheaclay's shop features "fine art for your table" - beautiful and practical functional pottery. SheaClay's best sellers are mugs with nature themed "clay applique" images, or twistmugs with earthy, neutral glazes, perfect for your favorite brew. she also sells alot of bowls, mainly large serving sizes, and place settings. She is more than happy to do wedding registries. She is currently working on a line of "spoiled rotten" pet dishes, treat jars, and personalized urns. All of her pottery can be used in the dishwasher, microwave and oven.
SheaClay has been making pottery on the wheel for 20 years, and selling full time since 2004. She also teaches classes privately, or does pottery parties, and teaches at a local art center.

SheaClay's favorite Etsian work
I have been making pottery since 1982. I fell in love with clay immediately and at a young age, and this memory is part of what motivates my love of teaching children about such a "magic" medium. I have had a few years of ceramics education at area community colleges and Akron University, but most of my education has been through studio work, making pottery at Hale Farm and Village, contact with other working artists, and through motherhood and family life. I also have a background in textile silk screening and mail order catalog production.
My life is all about my family, and making and selling tableware has enabled me to stay home and raise my kids. It is such a privilege to be invited to serve at so many tables- I appreciate the opportunity to make beautiful things which make a great family meal- or a simple cup a joe- even better.
