• Inspired by relaxing afternoons with her Mom and the talent of her artistic Nana, Sam created the DIY Pottery Kit Brand Pottery With A Purpose.

    "Pottery with a Purpose promotes individual and community well-being through a curated line of eco-conscious DIY pottery kits and team pottery workshops that invite creativity and mindfulness while giving back 5% of profits to mental health initiatives. 

    A lifelong struggle with anxiety and depression, compounded by burnout from a career in tech that didn't align with my values led me to seek relief from daily anxiety in a previous hobby - pottery making. Realizing that not everyone has time, space, or the budget to recreate all that a ceramics studio offers, I established Pottery with a Purpose, delivering the same creative benefits to others through sustainably-packaged and designed “do-it-yourself” kits containing everything necessary for at-home or at work clay play.One other aspect of the business that is super important to me, is partnering and supporting other women-owned businesses. 

    After experiencing and seeing discrimination as a woman in technology, I aim to partner with not only other women creators for the curated pottery kits, but also women web developers, packaging suppliers and more, in industries that are traditionally cis-male dominated." Sam still uses her Mom's pottery tools from the 70's + store them in her now vintage Folgers Coffee Can these DIY Pottery Kits help you connect with your creative spark while keeping Sam's artistic family legacy alive :)
