Eric Hendrick and Noelle VanHendrick
As newlyweds, Eric and Noelle decided to pursue their artistic passion, and put all of their gift money toward buying red clay for their handmade creations. Unfortunately, the clay they received didn't perform like it was supposed to. "It was bad," says Noelle. "We couldn't attach spouts or handles, and glazes wouldn't stick! We were bummed." Fortunately, the two carried on and have continued to share their gift for joyful ceramics.
Looking for solutions to their red clay dilemma, the couple dreamed up new ways to approach their craft by watching Tim Burton movies. "[We were] watching The Nightmare Before Christmas and bang! Clay Jack O' Lanterns without glazes [or] attachments [were born]." The duo had so much success with their charming Halloween lanterns that they bought more red clay--with a plan, this time--and sprung a patch of clay pumpkins as the hallmark of their collection.
"That was over 10 years ago," she said. "Lesson learned: Sometimes you must be crafty to get things done." collection
