About Ann Marie aka @annieoclay
In 2009, Ann Marie began working at Good Earth Pottery in Bellingham, WA--in sales and marketing. It didn't take long for the work to ignite her longtime back-burner dream of making pottery. She began on the potter's wheel, but after a workshop in coil-building, she abandoned the wheel and devoted her efforts to hand-building and developing her own signature--and evolving--style of ceramics.
Ann Marie built up a home studio, originally dubbed Kulshan Clayworks, after the majestic mountain that provides the backdrop to Bellingham: Mt. Baker or Koma Kulshan. Clay now dominates her life. She teaches classes for children and adults, is an active member of the Washington Clay Arts Association, Co-Founder of Whatcom Artists of Clay & Kiln (WACK), became co-owner of Good Earth Pottery in 2016 and sole owner in 2019.
Good Earth Pottery is a ceramics gallery established in 1969, located in the historic Fairhaven Village of Bellingham. The gallery specializes in locally handmade pottery & ceramic art, and also features several international shows a year.
