Kaitlan Murphy is a carpenter and potter based in Revelstoke, BC, Canada. In 2014, she built a tiny house that features an eyebrow dormer and stained glass windows, and painted her company’s name, Jumping Creek Pottery, across its side. This little green home on wheels is Kaitlan’s mobile pottery boutique, where she sells her handmade cups, mugs, bowls, plates, and more. She creates pottery from her hands and her heart, with the goal of reconnecting people with the beauty of food preparation and enjoyment. Eating nourishing food from a hand-turned bowl, or sipping cider from a mug that warms the hands are gorgeous, sacred experiences that are often forgotten in our frenetic, throw-away society. With her current Kickstarter campaign, she’s aiming to raise $25,000 to invest in equipment and streamline her studio, so she can continue to create beauty that she can share with others.
