Grayling Ceramics is a partnership of Maura and Shay Church. In 2014, Maura’s 15 years of experience in the restaurant business and Shay’s 15 years of ceramics experience combined to form the company. We are located in a small studio in downtown Kalamazoo, MI. As of 2019, we have two full-time potters on staff. The
four of us are dedicated to creating an evolving line of durable, well-designed ware that reflects the color and form of the Great Lakes region. If you have a chance, come check out our retail space and see what we're making in the studio!
All of our products are either thrown on a potters wheel or slip cast in molds we create in house. The products are evolving as our skill level and interests change over time. The clay and glaze we formulate is food safe and can be both put in a dishwasher and microwave.
