Here you can find a little bit about who we are and what we do. Our job is to make your experience one to remember.
We started with innovation and passion
Pottery Works Mobile is a unique, personally tailored experience for any group to enjoy. With the hard work of our staff, PWM has introduced a new and exciting way for groups of any size, whether at the home or office, a chance to flex their creative muscles. It is an unparalleled experience that allows you to not only connect with your peers, but your hidden artistic self. Our staff takes participants through the exhilarating stages of creating unmatched works (because they're yours!) of clay art that can be used for decoration or even practical uses around the house. In the past, PWM has hosted holiday parties for offices where extravagant, professional-looking ornaments were created for the home.
Just don't expect to sit idly by and be handed a little pot at the end of your session. During each event, our leaders act as artistic gurus and guide you through the process of planning, executing and finishing your own unique vision. Whether it's a dog bowl for your furry companion at home or an awe-inspiring dining table center piece, the leaders of your session can aid you in achieving your goal. At the end of each session, the staff will collect your creations and have them fired in her very own kiln. In just a few days, the pieces are returned and ready to be shown off.
PWM is intent on creating an experience that is harmonious with your own personal expectations. The mobile aspect of the company allows to set up a workshop in a conference room during lunch hour on a Friday or a sun-filled afternoon at a local park or community center. Name the date and location and PWM will take care of everything else. All you need to supply is some stimulating minds…and maybe a table or two.
About Our Founder
Pottery Works Mobile founder, Dyan Krajnikovich, has always been a hands-on person. Graduating from Temple University with a BFA in Art Education, Dyan immediately set out working with children for the Philadelphia School District. For several years she honed her skills as a teacher, perfecting her ability to creatively stimulate others around her. She loved bringing people together to communicate through art, but her passion for creating was often hampered by the often stringent school system.
Eventually Dyan left the school district and joined the Urban Outfitters, Inc team as an interior designer consultant for Anthropologie. Often seen as on the cutting edge of woman's fashion and style, Anthropolgie was a perfect fit for Dyan's unique eye for design. She continued her work in the field as a designer for Philadelphia's high-end furniture store, USONA. Although it was a fledging time for her career, Dyan began to feel a need to teach art again. Unbeknownst to many of her co-workers, she had been teaching a Wednesday night pottery class to children and adults alike. To Dyan, it's not so much about the pottery, but about getting together to learn about art and leave feeling refreshed.
The classes garnered such positive feedback that Dyan pitched the idea of making her class mobile and available to local companies. These pottery sessions, whether they were at a community center or in the conference room of a corporation, proved her theory right that people these days are really missing out on expressing themselves creatively. Pottery Works Mobile is now Dyan's chief concern and she hopes to continue to bring her limitless passion for all things art to others.
