Meet the Maker
Maple Leaf Pottery


Each mug is handcrafted in my home studio. Inspired by either my travels around the state or the life lessons I am learning, you'll be sure to see the beauty of New Hampshire reflected in many of my designs.

My mugs are also designed to be intentional reminders. After a severe case of COVID and a life long struggle with anxiety and chronic health issues, I began to pour my heart into a mug that would help change my focus and make me excited about my day. I knew I needed a daily reminder and practice to help cultivate that joy in my life and Brene Brown's quote really stuck with me:

“In the research, we learned that the most effective way to cultivate joy in our lives is to practice gratitude. The key word here is practice. It's not just about feeling grateful, it's about developing an observable practice. So often we think that joy makes us grateful, when in reality it's gratitude that brings joy.”

What do you make?
