Welcome To My Studio!
Pottery! It's been a lifelong passion of mine. The uniqueness of every piece, the shades of color, the endless shapes. It's all so beautiful to me.
My name is Brenda Hollis and I am originally from NYC. I currently live in upstate NY, in Saranac Lake and have been here over 30 years. I began my journey as a potter in 2013, mostly as a hobby. I soon realized that I could actually create beautiful pieces instead of just admiring them in a gallery or studio. My studio is currently in my home. I work in it every chance I get. It gives me time to reflect and to be relaxed. Working with clay is so therapeutic for me.
My favorite part of this process is, of course, the end result. Every time I open the lid to my kiln it fills me with excitement and anticipation to see what has been created. Even more satisfying is when someone comes along, loves your work, and feels a connection with a particular piece and gives it a place in their home. THAT'S the best feeling ever! I hope you'll feel some connection with my work. I hope you enjoy my website. Feel free to contact me for any information or questions you may have.
