Hi there! I'm Jocelyn Conrad, the maker behind JociePots.

My first "show" was at the craft bazaar of the church that raised me.  I was in college, fresh out of my first ceramics class and there on the table were bottom heavy vases, hefty mugs, and wonky plates to fill the space.  A gentleman picked up one of those hefty vases and stated “what a cute little Jocie pot!”  So, there in the gym filled with people who loved and supported me JociePots was created.

I am a sentimentalist, a lover of all things old that have history, and scars, and a story.  I can’t go for a walk without bringing back treasures.  My tool box is a hodge-podge of handmade trappings passed down to me from other potters, crocheted patterns by relatives, and those treasures from long walks.   

The Palace is my studio; a wooden sign is hung above the door as an homage to my Pepa who shared my love of making things to gift to others.  

It took me a long time to get to this point.  There were tears and joy and one serious conversation with the Lord that led me to this spot.  Here is where you'll see a glimpse into my studio and thoughts that make me who I am.  I create things I want to have in my home and my hope is that you love them so much that you want to have them too.
