About Wandering Bud

Hi there!

We are a team of six artists working from a small, urban studio space in Kansas City, MO. Originally a one-woman production set up in my basement, Wandering Bud began as a side project and respite from my day job as a teacher. I desperately missed making art and feeling creative. So, I found a deal on a Craigslist kiln and started making pipes after school and on weekends, as you do.

Why pipes? In 2016, I was living in a prohibition state, dreaming of bringing thoughtfully designed cannabis accessories to my home in the Midwest. I had been diagnosed with Crohn's Disease four years prior and was very interested in exploring cannabis to help ease my symptoms, but the pipes and accessories in the world at that time were pretty gross looking, to be frank. There was a ton of trial and error in those early days (still is!), but I eventually made pieces I felt proud of and posted them to an Etsy shop. They sold quickly, so I made more... and more... and more.

Between 2018 and 2022, I quit teaching, hired five employees, moved into our current studio space, and continued designing and making innovative ceramic pipes.

We have no investors, other than my Grandpa throwing in $700 to buy that first Craigslist kiln. Becoming a patron is a great way to offer consistent support to our team so we can continue to innovate and educate within the cannabis space while keeping artists employed. 

We look forward to sharing exclusive videos and content just for our patrons and plan to share deeper dives into our process and life here in the studio. We can't wait to continue building our community here on Patreon. Your support means everything to us - THANK YOU!
