About Me

My photo
Lewisville, North Carolina, United States
My name is Holly LaPonte and I have been a potter for over 7 years. I began by taking a wheel throwing class at the Sawtooth Center for Visual Arts in 2002. I not only sell my pottery at various craft fairs and festivals but I also teach wheel throwing to children ranging in age from 7 - 18. The name Hodge-Podge Pots describes my utter lack of ability to claim one glaze as my own and my short attention span that prevents me from becoming a production potter.
