Thanks for visiting!
Hello all. I'm the designer, maker, photographer, coffee grabber and roadie for Botany Lane Pottery. I've been throwing since 2016 and started selling in 2017 as a means of funding my ceramic supply purchases. That's where the name Botany Lane came from- it's the street I lived on when I found ceramics. The simple Wisteria leaf logo has a similar nostalgia as it was the first thing I'd planted in the garden at that house and I loved pressing it into the wet clay. It was like sending a part of my happy home on to others.
I recently sold and moved into a new house where I will make new memories but with the name of my old street & wisteria logo I'm lucky to get to carry my beginnings with me.
Fast forward to 2019 and I'm now a founding member of "Workable Earth: Old Ellicott City Potters Guild", a teacher and gallery artist at "The Clayground Studio & Gallery" in Historic Ellicott City, showcase & sell my work at "Taylors Collective", have my handmade buttons on clothing designs by "Lee Andersen" and am selling my wares at festivals all over Maryland.
