Melesa Hane of the clay Pottery was born in British Columbia and is a long-time resident of Northwestern Ontario. Creating with her hands has always been a part of who she is. Working with clay became an extension of that about 5 years ago. She was blessed through the generosity and mentorship of others to be able to establish a home studio over the last few years and is looking forward to offering workshops, lessons, and studio space to provide a creative space for others, pending the lifting of COVID-19 restrictions.
Her business name is “the clay” and her artistic style focuses on individuality which both stem from Isaiah 64:8: Each of us are created uniquely, from the dust of the earth and for a specific purpose. Though some of her pieces can work together as a set, no two pieces are exactly alike.
She is most known for her big mugs and platter sets.
