“Passion is energy. Feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you.” - Oprah
My name is Mariella. My middle name starts with B (and is similar to bueno). When I started selling pottery I decided couldn’t put my name on all of the work I made so I came up with m.bueno. Me, but not.
For almost two decades I worked behind the scenes in music – working for a record label and running an all ages venue. In 2014, when the venue decided to close its doors, I took a ceramics class. After one lesson throwing, I decided to buy a wheel. A year after that my friends had a craft fair and I sold some of my first work.
Based in Olympia, WA as a primarily self-taught ceramicist, I try to make my work affordable enough to use every day and simple enough to mix with things you already own.
Welcome to m. bueno pottery.
