Jean's Clay Studio

            Commissioned pieces of my pig and sheep designs

I fell in love with Jean Smaglik Wells's pottery years back and now call myself a collector and friend! You may be familiar with her pottery,  her mugs - a skull and  flower design were commissioned by Colectivo shops that carried a limited addition. Of course, I have the set (4 different colors) of the skull mugs!  
Like her pottery, she's playful, beautiful, and easy going. We had a great time while shooting our lifestyle photos. This is only a sampling since she has huge line that you can see/buy online as well.
At Christmas, I also commissioned a custom mug and bowl of my designs- pig and sheep for my mom and dad. :) I loved how they turned out. 

Her line includes kid sized plates, mugs, bowls. There is a style for everyone! Check out her Etsy site and website. 
Custom orders available as well.

You may have been lucky enough to pick up one of Jean's bowls at Milwaukee Empty Bowls event.
She's also a board director and co-founder!
 I have volunteered a few times now and know that her bowls are sought after! 
All of the artists/vendors donate their time, bowls, and energy to raise money and awareness to help fight hunger in the community.
