This evolution underscores the enduring commitment of Thrown Together Pottery.

After having beginnings selling her pottery in the Farmers Market A large chapter of Daneille’s life has also made a remarkable impact on our local economy. Over 30 businesses have been started as a result of students taking classes with Thrown Together Pottery! “We have grown quite the clay culture since I have started” shared Danielle, emphasizing the studio’s role in fostering a thriving pottery community. 

One of the most popular products for sale are mugs but an interesting fact about Danielle is that she is growing her product line to include crafting more urns She also has a special type of urn that will eventually disintegrate back into the earth.
