"Ask what makes you feel alive, and go do it"
Courage Goods was born of a personal journey, a need to flex my creative muscles, challenge myself, and focus and quiet my mind. What began as a one night a week hobby for fun quickly proved itself to be a much more significant place in my life. Pottery gave me space to explore a life lived with greater purpose and intention. An opportunity to work with my hands and body, producing real, actual product that is meant to be touched, held, savored, loved and enjoyed. No where else in this life do I feel more alive than I do, at my wheel in my basement, working with intense concentration, and a complete connection between mind and body. It gives me utter joy knowing this meaningful work will provide joy and purpose in someone’s home.
From My Hands, to your Home
Every piece of pottery that leaves this studio and enters your home is crafted step by step, one at a time, by one person in her basement. Every time you purchase a piece of pottery from Courage Goods, you are supporting an independent, hardworking maker. By choosing to spend your hard earned money on a handcrafted goods for your home, you help me pay my rent, buy groceries, enjoy dinner with my girlfriends, save for a trip and continue to hone, explore and develop my craft. I hope these homewares, made by hand from my heart, make your everyday experience of your home and kitchen just a little more special.
