How did you get into your business, and what motivated you to start it? In 2009, I graduated from Marshall University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts with an emphasis in ceramics. My dream has been to open a little paint-your-own pottery shop since my first pottery class. Shepherdstown is a great place to come and be inspired to make art.
