Simply Daisy

American Made Since 2003

Lisa Vincent

Rockport, Massachusetts
My passion is all about creating something from clay that will be useful and bring joy.

Tell us about your business.

I am a one-woman business that I created out of necessity. Not so much to make money, however, to distract myself as I recovered from a stroke 11 years ago. I started with lessons at a local potter, Cynthia Curtis, then as many potters do, set up shop in my home. I love to play with clay and see what I can create. It is different every day. That is what makes the process so much fun and brings me joy. All my pieces are functional in nature. My pots are for use and beauty. The color palette is warm and hopefully pleasing to the eye. Custom orders are my specialty. One-of-a-kind pieces. I love making them.

What makes your business stand out?

My business is unique as each potter is unique. I leave my hand made touch to each and every piece of pottery. You can feel it when you pick up a mug of coffee or plate up your dinner. Each pieces changes over time as well which gives each of my customers a sense of ownership and adding their touch as well.

What's the best business advice you've received?

It may sound cliche' however I believe that doing what you love makes your business grow. And a wise man once told me "don't be afraid to lose money, it's all about the customers that counts."
