Ceramics made with feeling.
Fellow Ceramics is the delightful, emotional, and sometimes ridiculous work of Chelsea Wilkins.
This pottery is created to celebrate all the ups, downs, and big feelings that human life has to offer. Fellows are all about empathy, honesty, and letting you know that you’re not alone.
Nice to meet you!
I’m Chelsea, and I (mostly) make the pots.
I decided to create these little weird friends because I wanted my work to help me feel something. I think I must have been born with a lot of extra mirror neurons, because nothing brings a tear to my eye like looking at another face with a tear in its eye. So I decided to make all types of emotional face pots, because I thought maybe they’d stir up a little bit of feeling in you, too!
My pots are completely handmade. My assistant and bestie Malaika does the throwing, and I do all the other bits! The eyebrows are coated in a delectable 22K gold finish, which I just can’t live without.
I live in St. Louis, Missouri and I work out of my home. My husband and my little son light up my life, and I enjoy hiking, reading, and podcasts as often as I can. Confusingly, I’ve recently started to enjoy cleaning my house. Perhaps someone should come check on me.
Kind words from fans of Fellows

Super fast shipping and so carefully packaged, he arrived quickly and in impeccable condition! I can’t wait to see what you create next! 🤓❤️”
“I can't express how much I ADORE this little fellow! You can tell how much love goes into each and every one. Thank you so much!”
“LOVE LOVE LOVE! I've been eyeing this shop for about a month before it opened up for sale and decided to treat myself to an early xmas present! Am so impressed and absolutely in love with my new lil fella!”
“I now own 3 fellows (no brag) and they make me so happy when I pour my coffee or hot water over a tea bag. They also look so nice together like a little mug family!”
“I’m completely in love with my little fellow! He is delicate, beautiful and unique! Thank you Chelsea 💚”
