Leslie Fruman is a former journalist and TV producer, who took up pottery for the first time in 2011 as a hobby - which quickly morphed into a small business that pretty much consumes all of her time now!

After Leslie carefully shapes each lump of clay, it takes days to dry before it is ready to be fired, glazed, and fired again in a very hot kiln - where it magically transforms into a beautiful and durable piece of functional art.

You can confidently use your Clayshapes every day - they are all dishwasher safe, and the colors will never fade. Handled with care, they will last a lifetime.

Leslie works from her studio in Prince Edward County, Ontario.
