Ceramics artist Sonja Korpela from Washington state is a kind person with a spark to her. Sonja is quick to laugh and her enthusiasm for pottery is contagious.
What began as a way to spend time with her daughter-in-law creating pottery together, soon grew into a love for learning the medium. “Its so relaxing. I’m a night owl, so I often stay up late and work on my wheel. I love the feel of clay, the smell, and all the colors of the glazes”.
Today Sonja has a full studio, teaching pottery to beginner and advanced students. She sells her pottery throughout Washington and recently has signed on with Rebloom Company to sell select pieces of her work.
