“You pick up a mug that has a saying on the bottom that says, for example, be true to yourself, or peace; on the spiritual side of things, it connects to your soul, so when you are having a bad day, or when drink your coffee in the morning, it sets that intention to your day,” says Angela Patterson Owner of Patterns & Pots Pottery.
Patterson discovered 10 years ago that pottery was a creative way to express your soul. She believes inspirations can come from different places.
“I am connected a lot with sayings. Sometimes the ideas just come to me when I am working in the wheel and I am making a mug, my own heart I guess,” she tells.
She adds that depending on the size and shape of item, the hardest, or the easiest it will be to make.
“It takes a lot of practice and a lot of work, but the work I create is pottery with intention. My business tag line is connecting earth, hands, hearts, and mind,” she happily narrates, “it grounds people as they touch it and use it. I just love creating and it’s a passion to work with my hands.”
“Their look on their faces and the ‘oh wow’ I did this! and be so proud of themselves and learn something that it isn’t actually that easy to do it,” adds business owner.
“When you start taking those steps forward, then it just comes and comes with ease. One more step forward is one more step closer to your dreams, so just do it!,” says Angela Patterson Owner of Patterns & Pots Pottery.
