POTTERY BY THE WOODS
ABOUT POTTERY BY THE WOODS
I am the owner of Pottery by the Woods. My name is Melissa Wood and I have been doing pottery for about 8 years. I am an Epilepsy warrior, after a diploma in the social worker program. I come from a small town where I was raised and I believe in "Quality" not "Quantity". I hand build, wheel thrown pottery to create a unique creation for every customer of mine. Every piece is hand painted and carefully created by yours truly. As I believe in "Affordable, Creative, Functional, Usable, and Attainable Pottery".
I am trying to bring back the traditional methods are Ancestors used that will give us dishes for decades! I am all about learning as pottery has become my life long skill. Stoneware Clay dates all the way back to 4500BCE where they believe it was China that first discovered pottery. It was where their they began making pinch pot bowls and shortly after introduced coil bowls. China was also the first known to make the pottery wheel.
Today moving forward I am proud to be part of the "Girl Gang" , based out of Sarnia, Ontario and a proud business woman! I am also in two stores; one based in Clinton the other in London. I also have a Pottery studio and shop in my household. Recently, I launched my own website which can be googled as potterybythewoods.ca to shop my unique creations. I use pottery as a sanctuary for making something from dirt beautiful!
After all... Clay is the Natural Gift of our Earth!
