This is 5 Lines Pottery
“The artist is nothing without the gift, but the gift is nothing without work.”― Émile Zola
5 Lines Pottery is owned by Becca Otis. The sole woman behind the potters wheel. It all started with a white lie because she needed one more credit in college and told her professor she knew how to throw pottery... And almost a decade after she has developed a unique style as well as strong discipline to make a living out of her craft. Her journey has been full of super highs and super lows. In 2014 an order placed by the Starbucks Roastery in Seattle Making over 300 pieces, helped her confirmed that production was her calling so she could jump in head first. As well as in 2016 when 90% of her inventory was destroyed by the wind in Leavenworth, Washington, confirming her commitment to never giving up just because of a small (huge) hitch in the road.
It is through failure that we learn how to succeed.
In early 2018 she took the leap to open up a store front on Main Street in Monroe, Washington. With almost 3000 square feet of space, she has big dreams for the space to be a place of community and art. She teaches classes and has the space open for paint your own pot at any time. Becca loves community and hopes that the studio becomes a hub for people who are looking for a creative outlet.
