HI my name's Matt (Founder, head ceramist & chandler)

I study Sports Medicine at the University of Georgia; go dawgs. When I'm not at a coffee shop getting my caffeine fix or reading — for school or pleasure — I'm either playing sports or going outside. My faith is very important to me and going outside to get immersed in creation is something that gives me a lot of rest. I think that's one of the reasons I like pottery so much. It gives me a tangible connection to God, like I sort of know how he felt when he created everything. It's a satisfaction that what I've made is good. Also, I'm dating this hot mama over on the right --->

P.S. She took most of the photos on the website! She's awesome and caring. I can't say enough good things about her.


Hey y'all I'm Kayley! (co-founder, Content & Digital Marketing specialist)

I graduated from UGA in 2016 with a degree in Marketing and International Business. I currently work at a marketing firm in Athens and I love visual storytelling. When I'm not doing photography I'm probably reading or writing. (shameless plug here's my website: I love going outdoors as well and enjoy capturing the beauty in people. I'm also a chapstick enthusiast and love the Lord. And I have a lotta love for this guy over here <-----


What's up fam my name is Camden (sales & Marketing Specialist)

What's good fam?! Ya boii just graduated from the University of Georgia as a Marketing major. However, I am more than just a graduate. Some of you may know me from my nicknames: midnight cobra, the protector, and even grandma. My goal is to provide people an outlet to buy candles, so yes I am your sales guy. All transactions can go through me. On the flip side I am a Steph Curry enthusiast, love Lecrae, and enjoy serving youth of greater Athens. #CandleSZN #BeanTalk #Beanski
