Clay Path Studio

Co-Owner
Creating for 7 Years

Every great story starts in a basement, right? Well, ours does. Seven years ago we (Brooke Teter & Kirsten Firlik) decided to jump of a cliff and turn a long time hobby into a business. It wasn't too long before we needed to quit our jobs so we could focus on our growing business. In the past seven years we have taught classes, rented studio space, participated in art shows and sold supplies. Eventually we knew we needed to make a decision as to what we needed to focus on as a business. Although a long road with many bumps, the decision was easy-make pots of course, because that is where our gifts and talents clearly laid.

Now our focus is solely on making simply elegant handcrafted pottery. We aim to create products that are not only practical for everyday use, but also artful and elegant enough for special celebrations and entertaining. From the very beginning we've collaborated in creating all of our work. We believe this to be a unique attribute of our business. From brainstorming and planning to executing designs, glazing & firing, there isn't a piece that leaves our studio that hasn't been worked on by both of us. We've discovered we work best as a team. And let's face it it's just a whole lot more fun that way too! We hope our work brings enjoyment and a smile to your face as much as it does ours.
