My name is Sunshine Evetts and I am the owner and artist behind Sunshine Synchronicity In Clay! I studied ceramics at the University of Alaska Fairbanks and then I took a long hiatus from clay while raising a family and pursuing other passions such as hiking, gardening and animal rescue.
Two years ago, I read The Artist's Way by Julia Cameron. This book made me remember that I am an artist! I set up my old wheel and began potting again. It was amazing! My skills were rusty, but I was instantly hooked on the feel of earth in my hands, the hypnotic spin of the wheel and the satisfaction of creating something both beautiful and functional.
I decided that I never want to not be making pottery! I took the leap and started my own small business, Sunshine Synchronicity In Clay. I am a small batch wheel thrown house potter living in Eagle Idaho. My motto is- Hands in the mud and feet on the earth! I want to make mistakes, grow and be led by my heart. I look forward to the continual journey of seeing where my craft and creativity will lead me.
My pottery is both functional and sculptural with a large dose of whimsey added to delight. Potheads have emerged as my main body of work. They are wheel thrown plant pots with faces sculpted onto them- perfectly imperfect creations just like us humans. I love to play in clay, and I hope to make you smile!
Potheads are more fun!
