The vision of Tree of Life Potters is to infuse the magic of the vast Appalachian flora into the ancient earth elements of ceramic art. Iron-oxides are used to give plant impressions a fossilized look, extending their life past their natural cycle, thus giving them eternal life. Beginning in the forest, this decorative and functional pottery is designed to reconnect the human spirit to nature and to educate about the many plants in our region, as well as bring joy into everyday life!
