Welcome Friends!
My name is Zakiah Bonnerwith and I am a potter working out of my small home studio in upstate NY. I am currently studying to become a visual arts teacher and inspire new generations to pursue their artistic gifts! 
Your patronage helps directly to:
-help Zakiah purchase quality ceramic materials and tools
-continue to make youtube videos to inspire and aid other potters
-create works of art to send to patrons
-and continue to develop, learn, and grow in the ceramic field
My Story:
Since my first experience with ceramics in high school, I knew ceramic art was something that I wanted to pursue further. From the first time I sat down at a wheel, I was able to make functional pieces of pottery. This came as a great surprise to me because my talents originated out of painting and drawing.
I ignored my love for art when applying for college, and instead started as a science major. After mounting frustration from being unsatisfied with my lack of artistic pursuits in my first few years of college, I changed my major to visual arts after receiving my associates in science. This resulted in a flood of happiness and newfound artistic expression!
During this time I took a few ceramics courses and made the ultimate decision to invest in my own materials to pursue ceramics to the fullest extent of my capability. 
It was with this decision that I was blessed with the opportunity to buy a used wheel and kiln for a reasonable price. This marked the creation of my small, local ceramics business- Z Ceramic!
I now vend through Etsy and local craft fairs. 
My time in the studio consists of working with mostly cone 6 porcelain, mixing my own glaze, trimming, loading the manual kiln, firing the kiln, and documenting as well as listing my pieces for sale.
Please know that as a patron you are so very precious to me because you make my dream of owning a successful ceramics business, as well as motivating me to pursue a degree in art education, possible!
