About the Artist!

 

 

Resident potter, artist, and owner of Gailanna Pottery, Carrie Wiederhold loves what she does!

 

Carrie is a native to southeast Michigan; growing up in the northern suburbs of Detroit. She moved to several different states and landed in the Nashville, TN area for 10 years. This is where she began her love of creating with clay. She has been throwing pottery on the wheel and hand-building pieces since 2005. She studied under artists in Tennessee and has been featured in art shows.

 

She decided to make the move back to Michigan to be closer to her large and close family. She left the corporate world to pursue her passion of ceramic arts. She now owns and operates Gailanna Pottery, named after her two daughters. Carrie creates her own pieces, teaches others her art and hosts events at her studio. She married the love of her life in 2015 and now has two wonderful stepsons.

 

If you get a chance, book a girls’ night out, bachelorette party or just stop in and see her.
