Your teacher

Happy Life Pottery is a labor of love brought to you by David and Amy Stellato.

After leaving his corporate career, David discovered and fell in love with the art of making pottery while living in Austin, Texas, in 2014. Shortly afterwards, this creative outlet served as a source of joy even throughout his most difficult year of battling Stage 4 cancer.

In 2016, David met Amy, another artist who had similarly just left her corporate career in search of a more "Happy Life." Together, they aspired to use their business and art backgrounds to help bring more joy and creativity into the world together.

Shortly afterwards, life threw another curveball when they learned David's mother had cancer and had been given only a 13% chance of survival. They immediately moved to California to care for her, and when she recovered, they resumed their plans - but this time, in beautiful California!

Now David and Amy have fulfilled their dream in beautiful downtown Benicia!

The Happy Life Pottery Mission is to Facilitate Joy through Creativity. Here is our mission statement:

There are numerous studies that show how expressing creativity positively impacts an individual's health, as well as a community. Our mission is to facilitate joy by opening up as many people as possible to one of our favorite mediums of creative expression: clay!
