Having no real artistic skill myself (even stick figures are a stretch), stepping inside of Scott Shafer’s Stoneware Studio in Centerville, Indiana was jaw-dropping.

Long tables, tall shelves, pottery, and all the things that go into making these one of a kind works of functional art are all around the Wayne County art studio.

Although Scott couldn’t give us the grand tour, he left the door open (as is the small Indiana town way, don’t’cha know!) so we could take a peek around.

In this sunny studio, well, how could you not feel inspired? Scott’s pottery is all around. Holding a bunch of bright daisies, or leafy plants, a bunch of pears, or a wooden spoon. There’s shelves of mugs and plates and fruit bowls.

In other words, this pottery isn’t meant to sit there and look pretty, oh no! It’s meant to be used! Although, you know, it could just sit there and look pretty if that’s what you wanted.
