About

Hi. I’m Michelle!

I’m a small batch potter with a fine art degree in digital communication design. I worked for years as a designer in the corporate world. One day in 2015, I signed up for an adult pottery class for fun with a friend and discovered clay! I fell in love. One thing led to another and now I work full-time making functional and decorative pottery in my home studio.

I love to make everyday items — mugs that feel cozy in your hands, bowls for mixing up meals, and seasonal decorations to brighten your home. I love to pour my world into my art, which could be anything from the the strong women who inspire me to the beautiful landscapes around the world, to my backyard.

All items are hand-crafted by me, in my home studio, located in Columbus, Ohio. Your purchase directly supports my family. I’m a one-woman shop, with loving support from my husband, a friendly little cat, and my sweet daughter (who is a tiny baby so she can’t actually help me — yet).

Follow me on Facebook & Instagram at @RiverlaneStudios for behind-the-scenes photos and videos, preview of what is to come, shop launch dates and the occasional cat or baby picture.
