Inspired by a belief that every child is a gift and that home and family are to be treasured, we bring you fun and functional pieces that are sure to delight young and old.  My name is Karen and Cottage Joy started with me making gifts for my children’s freinds and has grown into a home based business.  Each piece is hand painted and fired to make them food safe.

I have been painting pottery for about 11 years.   I live in Lincoln, NE with my husband John, our daughter Bryce, age 16 and our son Marshall, age 14
