Lakeside Pottery Studio, nationally recognized Ceramic and Sculpture Restoration studio, established in 2001 as a ceramic art and pottery teaching facility operating for 13 years. We are now focused on ceramic and sculpture repair and restoration in addition to custom made pottery and Kintsugi art. We also have implemented a large collection of pottery, sculpting , restoration and studio management web based education resources. We plan to continue to add lessons and tips. The website site resource is used mainly by ceramic artists and educators.
Lakeside Pottery is owned and managed by the husband and wife team of Patty Storms and Morty Bachar (see bios). They combine their many years of teaching art, pottery, sculpting, engineering and painting experience to operate their studios. The also teach specialized ceramic workshops in the local art center, Rehoboth Art League. We both have a love of art, enjoy problem solving and have a passion for teaching and helping others. We are fortunate to have found a way to operate in a creative and constantly challenging environment working on unique and varying projects regularly.

Pottery studio - Custom Made:
We are also a custom pottery and ceramic art resource for art collectors, interior decorators and landscape designers. Our ceramic art services include indoor, outdoor / garden, functional pottery and portrait sculptures. Our work can be done from drawings or duplicating items that are broken. We can use a variety of clays (stoneware, Terra-cotta, Porcelain, etc.) and have a wide range of glaze colors. Custom made Pottery Studio
We offer Kintsugi art shown in our on-line gallery or custom made to order. Kintsugi, as the practice is known, gives new life to damaged or aging ceramic objects by celebrating their frailty and history. One can consider how we might live a kintsugi life, or "rebirth" finding value in the cracks, missing pieces and chips – bringing to light the scars that have come from life experiences, finding new purpose through aging and loss, seeing the beauty of imperfection' and loving ourselves, family and friends despite flaws.
