About Fatty Frog Pots Handmade Pottery

Thank you for visiting and shopping with Fatty Frog Pots Handmade Pottery! I make pottery for pets and the people who love them! A portion of proceeds helps pets in need.

Fatty frog pots handmade pottery is made by me, Jennifer O’Keefe, in my home studio located in Indianapolis, IN, USA. I handle every aspect of the business myself, with just a helper at my local shows.

After being at home with my two daughters for many years, spending much of my time involved with their activities and sports, I began some soul searching, trying to think of a career choice that I would personally love while still having a flexible schedule for my family activities. I had said for many years that “I still don’t know what I wanna be when I grow up.”

I've been drawn to the warmth and usefulness of pottery for many years, and I love that it is such a hands on craft. I finally had the opportunity to learn to make ceramics and to set up my own studio in 2011, and it has been a very rewarding experience.

Our family has kept many types of tree frogs and dart frogs, and also dogs--The frogs are where my shop name comes from! Our biggest frog is nicknamed "Fatty Frog"... The dogs, my Potter's hounds, keep me company while I'm working!

A favorite quote of mine is: "It's never too late to be who you might have been" ~ George Eliot.

I love making lovely things out of MUD!! It amazes me that you can take clay, bake it a couple of times and the prettiest, most useful things are the result! I hope my pieces bring you as much joy as creating them brings me...Happy shopping!!
