Grayling Ceramics is a partnership of Maura and Shay Church. In 2014, Maura’s 15 years of experience in the restaurant business and Shay’s 15 years of ceramics experience combined to form the company. They are located in a small studio in downtown Kalamazoo, MI. As of 2019, they have two full-time potters on staff. The four of them are dedicated to creating an evolving line of durable, well-designed ware that reflects the color and form of the Great Lakes region.
