Oh y’all. I am beyond excited about this First Communion giveaway and how it all came about.
Let’s see, a couple of weeks ago I was browsing on pinterest (shocker, I know) for ideas on First Communion and I saw this beauty…
I thought, “That will be a perfect gift for John Paul!” He can put his FC rosary in there and it will be a beautiful keepsake for years. I clicked on the photo and discovered a treasure trove of pottery from Clarey Clayworks. In the seller profile, I noticed she lived in Indy. “How cool,” I thought. We lived there for five years and I just love Indiana and the people in it. I knew she had to be legit. We started exchanging Etsy emails and come to find out she’s a parishioner at our old church, knows our oldest son’s Godfather, had our Godmother’s daughter for one of her kids teachers and lives ten blocks from where we used to live.
Hi, small world. It’s so nice to meet you.
She is seriously talented and I’m so excited for you to meet her. I’m all about showcasing a fellow Catholic mom who has a fantastic business. You have the opportunity to win this beautiful bowl, personalized with your child’s information – how cool is that? Without further adieu, here is Anne!
Hi, I’m Anne Clarey, chief artist and designer at Clarey Clayworks! I was born and raised in New York. I’m a graduate of the Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C., and I trained in clay and glaze formation at the Corcoran Museum of Art, School of Art, also in Washington. I currently reside in Carmel, Indiana, with my husband and young children. If you are local, I offer delivery and if you live outside of Indianapolis, you can order via my Etsy shop!
One lucky reader will receive a personalized First Communion bowl! Now that you’ve seen a few photos of the bowls and learned a bit about Anne, here’s how to win that beautiful bowl.

There are so many things to love about her creations, but the thing I love most of all is how her faith shines through each piece. Wow!
