Shannon Colson

Head Author

A self-proclaimed “chronic hobbyist”, Shannon tried pottery thinking it would be a one-time thing—a year and a half later, she hasn’t stopped creating! Whether it’s on the wheel or hand building, she’s enjoying exploring it all. Although these days, you’ll find her more often hand building, creating fun pieces to gift & decorate her home!
