After 10 years in corporate sales, I decided to do something different.
For months I'd been feeling what I call "divine discontent" with my corporate career. I longed to do something creative, entrepreneurial, and to have flexibility and freedom in my daily endeavors. I loved working with clay as a hobby and dreamed of one day being a full time potter. For some reason I thought retirement was the time to live out my dreams. I'm delighted to say I chose not to wait.
Armed with fierce faith and determination, LOTS of ideas, and a bit of savings, I set out to pursue my hearts desire. I joined an artists co-op and began making wheel thrown and hand built pottery. I'm fascinated with raku firing and began exploring it's possibilities. By combining my personal style of etching and carving with traditional and slip resist raku, I created a look that is totally unique, totally me. Melodie Grace Pottery was born.
In addition to my daily slinging of clay, I'm showing in exhibits, art fairs and galleries. I'm in absolute awe of the blessings God has poured out on me and my business in such a very short time and am thrilled and grateful to make a living doing what I love. This opportunity is a constant reminder that dreams can come true if you have the courage to follow them.
