Mark and Tracy met in July of 2014. Our enthusiasm for pottery became a shared passion as we embarked on a journey in the arts and crafts.
Mark's early exposure to wood working with his father laid the foundation to his craftsmanship. Mark's interest in building and creating led to his motivation to develop his skills in metal working, welding, and wood turning.
Tracy also had early influences in arts and crafts that led to her experiences with acrylic painting, mixed media, cross stitch, and jewelry making.
Mark and Tracy discovered that while they followed their passion with other crafts, they both always had a curiosity with and desire to pursue pottery.
In 2011, through the encouragement of potter friends, Tracy enrolled in her first pottery class at the Community Arts Center in Wallingford, PA at the age of 45. Tracy now spends every free moment she can making pots when she is not working at her full-time job.
When Mark met Tracy, he couldn't wait to visit Tracy's pottery class. Mark registered for the next session in the Fall of 2014 and hasn't stopped throwing pots since.
Today, Mark and Tracy spend time throwing pots together in their own studio in their home in Media, Pennsylvania.
