About Us

A family owned and operated showroom and studio, featuring the work of artist Jodie Hames.  Nestled in a small country setting, a visit to Clayworks Pottery is an adventure.  Part of the fun is the drive through the rolling hills of Bethany and the warm country greeting upon arrival.  With the sounds of a handcrafted clay water fountain and local radio in the background while Jodie works, visitors can relax and take time to browse inside the showroom.  Works in progress such as rows of mugs ready to be glazed, or seasonal creatures like snowmen waiting to come to life, are visible to the store.


During warmer weather months the showroom extends into the garden.  Whimsical garden ornaments, wall creatures, trees and flowers, all come to life nestled among the plants or hanging against the red studio wall.  Birds make an appearance too, enjoying the variety of ceramic bird baths and feeders.
Through handcrafted small batches, functional items take on special qualities through different processes and techniques such as carving, stamping, drawing and glazing.
