Hi, I’m Carey (cb). The hands and heart behind CBerry Pottery. I am a one woman small business. I create each piece from raw clay, trim and finish, bisque fire, glaze, glaze fire, finish, photograph, pack, and ship, and even mop the floor.

I first experienced clay when I was 6 and flew to California with my older sister to visit my aunt, a professional potter. I remember vividly the feel of the canvas in the roller and the smell of wet clay and they still transport me back to that time. Before I fell in to clay full time, I studied Cell Biology and Nursing. When I graduated the only thing I wanted to do before I started my dream job in nursing was to spend a couple weeks with my aunt working in her pottery studio. We worked hard and played hard and I was in heaven. I have been incredibly lucky to have an Aunt like Louise, so generous with her studio and her time for all these years. Then life happened and I found myself at home with two small kids and a space that had previously been a pottery studio. I finally made the time and created a studio space. At first I thought I was sidetracked, but it turns out that I finally listened to my heart. The desire to create runs deep in my family, I just had to find my outlet.

I strive to make each object beautiful, useful, functional, and inviting enough for you to connect with every day.
