“Life is about using the whole box of crayons.”  – Joyce Shelton
I’m Darcie McLachlan, an art lover and creator living here in the Jamestown Area!  I graduated from Penn State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Art, Painting and Drawing.  Like a lot of people, I got to experience working with clay in high-school, and also in college as an elective to my studies.  And although life took me in a different direction, I never forgot how throwing on that wheel made me feel!  It is a pretty amazing thing!
When I’m not at work or spending time at the Clay House, you can find me gardening, riding my bike, baking, or just outdoors enjoying nature.  I also enjoy spending time with my husband, Duke, and two dogs Colby Jack and Pepper Jack. Our family absolutely loves living in Chautauqua County!
I am thrilled that we have our very own pottery studio right here in Jamestown, NY —– A place where you can take a little break from your normal, every-day life and go on your own creative adventure!
I am so excited to join you, your friends and family – We are going to have a lot of fun together!  Let’s get muddy, Jamestown!!
