FEATHER MUG
FEATHER MUG

My name is Kaitlan Murphy, and I am a carpenter/potter based out of Revelstoke, BC. Last April I built a tiny house and on her side in big bold letters: Jumping Creek Pottery.

TINY BOUTIQUE BUILT BY KAITLAN MURPHY
TINY BOUTIQUE BUILT BY KAITLAN MURPHY

I began selling pottery out of my tiny house in July 2014.  I sold mugs, pie plates, salad bowls, casserole dishes, cups and teapots to summer tourists.  I sold out often and would be forced to close my doors while I threw, glazed and fired additional product in order to replenish my shelves.

Working within the limitations of my current studio set-up, the level of production required to sustain my summer business necessitated 16-hour days during the summer selling season.  I am investing in the infrastructure of my studio to make my pottery production more efficient.  These improvements are necessary in order to make Jumping Creek Pottery a viable success.

Risks and challenges

"Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all" - Helen Keller

The risks and challenges involved with the Jumping Creek Pottery campaign include targeting a large enough audience to meet the campaign goal of $25,000.
Depending on the level of success of this campaign, there may be a challenge to produce all rewards by Sept 2015. This is a challenge that I can't wait to contend with!

    PATTERN BOWL - Several years ago, I was hiking through the Utah dessert. I came across an old dwelling that had the most beautiful painted patterned entrance. Patterns make up our speech, our dance, our songs. It is the drumming of our hearts. I thank that old set of hands that painted ochre on that stone dwelling for letting me see pattern.

    FEATHER BOWL - I spent a day at an abandoned fishing cannery, once a vibrant community boasting schools, a bowling alley and a theatre. Forest had reclaimed the boardwalks and buildings. I lost an afternoon to finding pottery shards along the beach. For some reason, making these bowls takes me back to that afternoon.

    MOUNTAIN BOWL - Have you ever climbed a mountain in the winter? As you reach the top, there are the lines and shadows of all the peaks and ridges around you. Blue sky above and the subtle fluid contrasts of white on white. I try to put this feeling of wonder into my Mountain bowls.
