Colleen Hennessey Clayworks is a joint venture of Colleen Hennessey and her wife Adele Horne. Colleen makes all of the ceramics by hand. Adele runs the business side of things, makes the glazes, and fires the kiln. Colleen’s simple and functional everyday ware is inspired by the food that she grows and prepares.

Colleen and Adele live on the beautiful Mendocino Coast of Northern California, and operate the business from their home, along with some rotten terriers and unruly chickens. 

Simple, functional ceramics inspired by growing and cooking food.
