One Clay Bead

“In Chinese, the word for crisis also means opportunity”

Thus begins the bio of Lee Wolfe, the ceramic artist behind Ashville, North Carolina’s One Clay Bead. She opened her Etsy shop out of necessity, after the economic crisis in 2008, when credit was frozen, galleries were unable to buy, and her husband was laid off. Her creativity paid off, and she went on to become a top-selling Etsy ceramicist. Her tightly edited (and ever-changing!) collection of dinnerware and home decor pieces are lovely organic forms with jubilant color and thoughtful details. (As always, click to shop!)
