"I particularly enjoy making functional work because these pieces are meant to be handled and interacted with - having the potential to become an intimate part of someone’s day to day life. It is my belief that a well-made cup or bowl can transform something as seemingly mundane as a simple meal or coffee break into something more ritual and meaningful." - Hunter Smith
Our local artist in residence, Hunter Smith, mindfully hand crafts all of the one of a kind pottery displayed throughout our studio. He creates a wide range of functional ware as well as decorative art from a variety of clay bodies. We're particularly fond of some of his porcelain pieces.... Hunter creates art on a continual basis, and our photo gallery is often unable to keep up, so drop by the studio to see what's new on display, and give him a follow on Instagram @huntersmithpottery.
Pottery can sometimes be purchased as a set for a discounted price or as individual pieces- woohoo! AND every once in a while, Hunter drops a few deeply discounted pieces into the seconds basket! Stop by our studio location at 300 Greensboro St. to view Hunter's work, interact with it, and speak with our office coordinator about how to take home the pieces that most speak to you.
We thank you for supporting our local artists!
What Our members and Guests Are Saying
"I came to my first guided meditation with Di last week and then I came to sit in the mindfulness room for lunch this week. I felt welcomed and cared for both times I was there. I’m so grateful I met Di and Miki. They are both amazing and made me feel loved. I highly recommend just walking in the door to anyone who is looking for a place to feel at home. I can’t wait for more experiences here." - Tori G. 4/21/2022
"Soulflower is the best hidden jewel in Starkville. The entire staff is welcoming, kind, and caring to every individual that walks through the door. It is an incredibly supportive atmosphere that draws you back again and again. It is wonderful that Starkville has this small oasis that helps everyone to find their own path in healing, support, or a simple daily repose. Soulflower offers a variety of classes, programs, and products that reach every audience. They make it possible for everyone to find something they enjoy. I cannot recommend Soulflower enough." - Soulflower Guest 4/3/2022
