About Us

My name is Lou I am the owner and potter, creator, designer, shipper. You name it I do it. I'm a one woman show!



I've been throwing pottery for over 38 years and I have a true passion for clay and lighting. If you don't see what your looking for, we can design something together. Just send me an email!

I studied the art of pottery and ceramics in high school, my instructor Mr. George Douris passed down to me his passion for this art and I love what I do.

I opened my shop on Etsy in 2009. I started with mugs and bowls and a few melted bottles, before long I was creating far too much to give away, so I started selling it for the joy of affording to create more.

Then in the past couple of years I was searching for a light for my kitchen, and could not find anything. So I decided to create one, this is how L & S Handcrafted Lighting was born, which is now The Clay Cafe.


Thank you for stopping in, and helping me grown my small business.
