I'm Rachel, AKA "Roo", and I am the owner and creator of Artist Rach Ceramics. I created this business as a platform for selling my ceramic creations to local businesses, markets, fairs, and custom requests.

Along with making and selling art, Rachel also teaches children and adult ceramic classes with the hopes to open her own classroom one day. She enjoys the challenges that come along with teaching all ages as well as helping members of the community find their creative spirit, as she has found hers.
