Owners of The Thistle Grey
Amy Hudson Ceramics (Amy Hudson) - Ceramics
I have had a love for art and creating for as long as I can remember. I started making pots in 2007 after the birth of my oldest son. My weekly night out was a ceramics class at the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts. I continued taking classes and in 2011 I set up a home studio. I started teaching ceramics classes at the KIA in 2016 and I continue to teach and make work. Most of my work is thrown on a potter’s wheel and then altered in some way. I want my pots to have a sense of movement about them and be just a bit out of round.
Ten26 Studio (Danielle Vincent) - Jewelry and Metals:
Metal, flame, hammers; it is all a playground to forge creative pieces that express a one of a kind dance between grit and refinement that are heirloom quality but do not take themselves too seriously.
The Ten26 Studio was born alongside my first child Ava. The name refers to Ava's birthday and when I left my "safe" job to become an artist and start my new adventure as a mom 13 years ago.
Amy and I hope you truly enjoy our work as well as the work of others we will be bringing to you.
