My name is Kelly Feaster and I started Lean Dog soon after I earned my BFA in Ceramics in 2008 from San Francisco State University. Lean Dog Pottery was born out of my love for clay. I began as a potter and one day decided to experiment with making jewelry items. Now, jewelry is my main focus. I'm mainly in love with the fusion of glass onto the clay. It creates a colorful and fantastic crackled surface. Before firing, I carefully pick and choose glass colors for each piece. You never know what's going to come out of the kiln the day after firing, its extremely exciting!

Outside of creating I'm a wife and a mother to two kitties (Leroy-Gray and Chester-Woo). I reside in San Luis Obispo - off the central coast of California. I enjoy any kind of exploration - hiking, walking and biking. I am what you would call a tree hugger; big on recycling and doing all I can to help out mother earth! The glass in my pieces come from found glass. I'm also a big animal activist and believe every being deserves a happy life.
