I'm Joy and I started creating Tiny Happy Clay in my garage studio and selling on Etsy in September of 2015. I needed a creative outlet that wasn't on the computer full time and that would allow me to stay home with my kids. I currently have my ceramics for sale in local Texas gift shops and available on Etsy.
Functional and decorative goods for the home and garden is my focus. I use a variety of techniques from throwing on a wheel to hand-building with slabs or coils. I get my supplies from Armadillo clay and use low-fire earthenware and commercial food safe glazes. I also outsource water-slide decals.

My inspiration comes from flora and fauna as well as an appreciation for the odd and quirky. I throw some pieces on a potter's wheel and hand-build others with slabs of clay and hand-carved stamps. I enjoy layering pops of color and decals over a white clay body.
I hope to create works that the owner will love and treasure-- that coffee mug that gets their day going right, or that little owl that perches on their shelf, bringing cheer to the room. Celebrate the simple life and treasure the everyday moments with Tiny Happy Clay.
