My name is Cat and I make pottery in Virginia Beach. Most days I am accompanied by my dog Fly and my love, Ian. There are a lot of things that we are about. Making pots is the obvious one. But we are also about joy, and adventure. And love. 

When you purchase something made here, you will be holding much more than a mug, or a bowl, or a jar. You are holding a tiny bit of who we are, and what we are about. So please be kind to us. And fall in love with our imperfections, and rejoice with us in the things that make us most brilliant.

We love what we do. And you may catch us at a market on our best of days, or maybe you catch us on a dreary day. But we hope whichever it is, that you feel loved. And that you know we are trying so hard to keep this silly dream alive and working.

We are so thankful for those who support our love for handmade items. And we hope that when you purchase something with a Flydog tag, or simply just pick things up off the table and return them after, that you are only furthering your love of handcrafted items as well.

Because it is such a beautiful love. And one that this world needs a lot more of.

 

We named this business after our pup, Fly. She is a beautiful example of life. When handled with a gentle spirit, her potential for beauty is astounding, yet she has the equal potenitial to destroy all things beautiful (just ask us for stories). She is easily distracted and intrigued by the smallest of wonders, not afraid to disobey. Her resemblance to clay may only be understood by us, but it is a hope that her personality is captured in every piece made here at the studio, and brought into every home, to sit amongst life. Whether on a shelf or in the palm of a hand, whether worn out by the same coffee table or being chipped in constant travel, whether shared with the world or kept in tiny rooms with dark curtains. Everything that journeys from this space mimics the heart of Fly. Abundant in joy. Seeking the next adventure. Longing for a safe place to land.
