Happy Life Pottery is a labor of love brought to you by David Stellato. After leaving his corporate career, David discovered, and fell in love with, the art of making pottery while living in Austin, Texas, in 2014. Shortly afterwards, this creative outlet served as a source of joy even throughout his most difficult year of battling cancer, and has ultimately inspired him to bring this fun & expressive art form to others!

Now David and Amy (his fiancé) begin a new chapter in their lives by bringing this wonderfully creative outlet to beautiful downtown Benicia! We hope you will be inspired with your own passion and enthusiasm for the art of pottery by classes, shopping, or both!
