Welcome to Maryhill Clayworks. I am a one-person small business, working from my studio in Freeville, NY.

I make everything you order with the greatest of care, and handle each order individually -- from design, to production and shipping.

I use only high quality white stoneware clay with a premium white glaze that is smooth and soft to the touch. 

All of my work is dishwasher, oven, and microwave-safe.

 

I earned my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in sculpture from Boston University, worked as a portrait sculptor for a monument company in Barre, VT, and for 6 years as a product designer for the MacKenzie-Childs pottery company in Aurora, NY.  

 

I was born and raised on a dairy farm in Dryden, NY in the heart of the Fingerlakes’ wine country.  I'm the 7th son and 11th child of Marion and Norbert Schickel's 13 children. 

 

From my mother I learned balance, proportion and how to live a beautiful life. From my father I learned about setting goals, dreaming big and taking a chance. From my brothers and sisters I learned to be scrappy, to be kind, and to share. 

 

In 2003 I founded Maryhill Clayworks, named for our dairy farm. My home and studio are located just outside of Ithaca.

My wish is to create beautiful work, which complements and inspires your culinary creations, houses your beautiful bouquets, or celebrates your milestone events.

I invite you to explore my work and to make it your own.

 

All best wishes,  Jacques Schickel
