My name is Melissa Beckwith. I live in Louisville, Colorado with a small pottery studio in my backyard. I have a graphic design business, a wonderful husband, two small kiddos, a cat and a small home with a big yard. Outside of those duties, I love to work with pottery and try to find a few hours a week to work in my backyard studio and get lost in the world of clay.
I use a mid-fire, cone 5 clay. I love good glazes, form, shapes, texture and detailed trimming. I collect pottery from everywhere I go and find inspiration in nature and beauty. I love the process of forming a ball of soft clay into a functional object.
I have a backyard studio at my home in Louisville, Colorado. I work as graphic designer by day and try to get a few hours of studio-time in each week.
I sell my pottery at few art shows each year. I have the dates of any upcoming shows listed here. You can also contact me directly about sales.
