sponsor love + giveaway with NS Pottery.


meet natalie of NS Pottery.

Hi, I'm Natalie! I started NS Pottery back in 2008 as a young 20-year-old business owner. The idea of being an artist and selling things that I make has been a dream of mine since I was a little girl (I used to make paper animals at my grandma's house to sell to my relatives, ha!) After graduating from high school, I took some wheel-throwing classes at a local pottery studio and fell in love with clay. I have learned SO much about clay and business in the past four years and feel so blessed to be living my dream!


i am super stoked to have the chance to feature the incredible work of Natalie! i love her creative use of quality stoneware - whether it's a beautiful trinket dish or darling necklaces like this one or that one. and i am particularly obsessed with the key to my heart necklace - i own one in teal and rock it with just about any outfit (see photo below)! and for any dinner or bakeware, everything is dishwasher or microwave safe - amazing, right?! seriously impressive! and on a side note, i think her photography work is stunning!

  45. Totally inspired by Natalie's passion for her work. If I had to choose I would opt for the 'Key to My Heart Necklace - Purple Orchid' - in love with the lace-print detail. Oh and also, the Stoneware herb markers - setting up a herb garden at the moment and this would be a real boost :)
