Do you have a mug moment story?

Maybe a favourite you made when you were a kid or one given to you by your best friend?

My passion for pottery started with a mug.  Back in 2010 when I first laid eyes on a beautiful black glaze I had never seen before. Prior to this, I did not enjoy anything about pottery – the colours I saw, the feeling of the rough clay.  Until I saw this mug and then began the hunt.

I believe that opportunities come to us to see and experience the world differently. We can choose to act on it or to continue as we always have. When I saw that mug, a spark was ignited. I wanted to see what I could do, how I might be able to create. I was so excited about the idea of learning pottery when my mom came across a skilled potter, she took a chance.  She gifted me my first few lessons to see where it would lead.

Following these lessons, I was fortunate to join the London Clay Art Center and was able to learn from skilled potters and experience the possibilities of clay.  Today, I am creating my own pieces, each with their own purpose and message.

After working in my farmhouse basement (mostly cold) home studio, I am thrilled to be in a space of my own (above ground)!   Space where I can share my passion and teach others the process and joys of clay.

I invite you to this warm, welcoming space to start your clay journey and create your own mug moment story.

Angela is a fantastic instructor, calm, patient and passionate about her craft.  Even with a group of 20, I felt her individual support. Looking forward to a class... soon!

We had an awesome time with Angela Patterson! Highly recommend this workshop. It was so much fun molding a tray and throwing some clay on the wheel to make a bowl.

 Angela was amazing at doing a custom order for my staff Christmas gifts. The various pieces were unique and meaningful! Her customer service and quality of work is +++++++++++. I’ve since purchased a few different pieces from her—and I love using them!
