Curious Clay

Meet The Maker, Janna Bailey, of Curious Clay in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

As a former painter Janna Bailey is primarily a self-taught potter who uses a combination of wheel-throwing and hand-forming to create her ceramic houseware. 

Janna’s hand-thrown ceramic snack trays, dessert plates, bowls, mugs, and liquor sippers are playful, conceptual pieces that are equal parts artistic expression and functional houseware. Of her pottery she says, “I hope my works can live in their new homes, and be a part of the slower moments in the day; whether it's your morning cup of coffee or afternoon meditation.”

Janna deeply values the hands-on process of working with a slab of clay. She enjoys the process of creating one-of-a-kind pottery and hopes that joy shines through her collections.
