Welcome to my sculpture, pottery, clay art, art gallery world. I'm Cindy Douglass aka Stardust Pottery. Thank you for visiting this online pottery store, StardustPottery.com.
I love to tell stories in clay. Sometimes the story is of a beloved pet on a yarn bowl, sometimes the story is shared through a sculptural tile, and other times, the story is told in a tabletop sculpture.
I believe we are the sum of the stories we have lived and heard in our lives. We also tend to find connections with other people by sharing our stories. My art works to bring a bit of encouragement, hope, happiness,and charm to the visual stories of life. If you have a story you want to share with others by way of your art and decor, please let me know. I'm happy to help promote your story in the art and decor of your home or office with custom art.
My clay art studio is located at 306-C S Main St., Drexel, NC 28619. I share space with two other artists. There is a fun, small, art gallery at the front of the studio space. Please call or email ahead for a time if you wish to visit.
I strive to provide you with not only fantastic art that makes your heart sing, but also a great online shopping experience. If you have questions, comments or concerns about your order or the content found within this website, please contact me and I’ll answer within 24 business hours, usually just as soon as I get my hands cleaned of clay.
Origins of the name, "Stardust Pottery" (aka a story).
I looked for a cool business name for a long time. It seemed that other potters had taken most of the cool, cute or even radical names that I could dream up with the word “clay”.
Finally, one day I was reminded that my name, Cindy M Douglass, is literally in stardust, courtesy of JPL and NASA’s Stardust project. I had stumbled on this project during my early web design days. At the time I also lived just 40 minutes away from NASA, so I signed up my name. Percentage wise, very few people in this world can say their name is floating out in the stardust.
When I thought about it, reaching for the stars while transforming humble clay and exploded star debris into something whimsical and useful seemed a poetic truth of my life. So Stardust Pottery is the name I choose for my clay, art, and pottery business.
I enjoy making these creations. If you enjoy art that celebrates your love of this great adventurous experiment called "life" -warts and all- and you want original art that reflects YOUR unique style, I believe this art will speak to you.
