Description

Currently, we are a team of four staff members, Miriam Overholt, Rachel Zahniser-Cranston, Kristoffer Broadley, and Amanda Whittemore, working out of our studio in Wichita, Kansas. We create a variety of pottery and ceramic pieces, both hand-thrown and cast. All of our glazes are lead-free and food safe. PotteryWorks was born from a desire to respond to God’s call and to use our pottery skills to employ at-risk youth in the Wichita area. This is a new branch of Legacy Ministries, which already employs at-risk youth to work in urban gardens and help host farm-to-table brunches. We envision that PotteryWorks will help youth with interests in art and/or business to develop greater confidence and self-efficacy, which can help them discover their own sense of vocation and purpose in the world. We hired youth workers in January 2016 and love getting to work with them and see them grow. Your purchase of our pottery will help support programming and enable us to continue offering this program to young people. We love to do wedding registries! If you want to register for our pottery send us a note and we’ll be glad to work with you.
