The Crooked Pot is owned and operated by Mel Corrigan
Mel’s pottery journey began in a high-school ceramics class. During graduate school, she purchased an old kiln when a ceramics operation from her hometown (Seward, PA) went out of business, and she has been making and firing clay creations ever since. After decades of handbuilding, she took to wheel throwing. She operates The Crooked Pot out of an old-hayloft-turned-studio in Clarkston, Michigan.
The Crooked Pot sources Michigan-made stoneware clays from Runyan Pottery Supply. Mel uses a variety of studio-made glazes and commercial glazes on her wares.
