I create with specific intent and purpose, producing unique vessels that are as pleasing to look at as they are to use. Every piece is distinctive and different and can be adored for its uniqueness. My forms are influenced by nature, similar to the sensual curve of a bird's wing or the seductive curve of a mountain. The undulating movement of life can be seen in the flowing progression of my pottery from foot to rim.
Kelsey grew up the daughter of master wood worker and black smith Lyle Wheeler. When she was 11 years old she touched clay for the 1st time and that was it. She was hooked and knew from that point on she wanted to be a potter. Kelsey lives in Asheville with her husband Pete, 2 cats Merlyn and Nibble and Ziggy the wonder dog.
From beginning to end each pieces flows from Kelsey's hands to yours. Kelsey uses small handmade one of a kind stamps to decorate the surface of her pottery. The designs spring from her imagination into reality on the surface of her pots. Distinct for their hand-made quality, art nouveau forms and attention to detail, each piece is unique. Its all in the details! You will find hidden design elements inside the lids of teapots, on the bottom of vases, and running up the handles on every piece.
