Lakeside Pottery Studio was established in 2001 as a ceramic art and pottery teaching facility that is now focused on ceramic and sculpture repair, restoration and conservation 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 & educators.

Kintsugi Pottery:

Kintsukuroi or kintsugi pottery repaired with gold effect

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.
