Clay & Baker

What if I told you I just did something I've never done before?

What if I told you I just did something I've never done before?
When it comes down to it, it is just simple math.  I'm not costing my family money by paying $84 for a babysitter.  I'm actually costing my family money if I don't hire a babysitter.  

Come put those little hands and feet in Clay!!

I'm a mom of four.  One of the perks of being a potter is that I've been able to get my little ones to do sets of clay handprints through the year...

Always Learning

Always Learning

These days it seems that I'm constantly trying to learn something new...I'm learning about how to better use my website, how to market more effectively with Pinterest, how to use a different glazing technique, how to modify my potter's wheel, how to grow an email list... and the list goes on right?

Ok... so I think I've recovered.  :)

The end of 2017 for Michelle Leach Pottery was C R A Z Y !!!!  But it was so much fun.  I was blown away by the number of orders I received, and boy did I have my work cut out getting all of them fulfilled by Christmas.  November and December made for many late nights in the studio.

But honestly my "studio" in our home had become embarrassing.  I hesitate to even show you pics.  But I'll indulge you if you promise not to judge ;)

Here we go!

Here we go!
I've learned that sometimes what keeps us from pursuing new endeavors is thinking we have to be perfect from step one. And then the pressure to be polished keeps us from doing anything at all. So confession: my website is still under construction, my skills as a potter are a little rusty, and I've still got questions on how to run this business.

But you know what? I'm going for it.
