About Us


The Company

My company, Ceramics on Wheels, has been serving the Tri-County Schools, Parks and Recreation for the past 13 years.  We have brought our crafts into hundreds of schools, serving thousands of children, including Special Needs programs such as ARC and The Most Programs. 

The kids enjoy the hands-on crafts, to be able to express themselves individually through colors, design, and various techniques.  They are experiencing and discovering self expression and choices to create their very own personalized art projects without the influence of their families or fear of doing it wrong.  Our motto is, "It's art, it's yours, and it's GREAT!"

imageI founded The Original Ceramics on Wheels, Inc., in June of 1998, with the intent of starting over as a single mom, working from home, and being able to have a flexible, fun job part time.  I was involved in my children's school, their aftercare activities and was caring for my mom, who had advanced Alzheimer's disease.
From the first day, I loved being a mobile business bringing crafts to kids in schools in Broward, Dade and Palm Beach counties.  We are an approved vendor for all three school districts, Parks and Recreation, YMCAs, ASP, ARC, PTAs, SAAC, Girl Scouts, hotels, assisted living communities, churches, synagogues, special needs and many more.  Our birthday parties are always a favorite for both the parents and the kids!  I still make the molds and the figurines to be painted, and we have added a new craft every two years.  I have had the privilege to be hugged and thanked endlessly on this job by people that come up to my waist and I can't think of a better way to spend one hour at a time.

My intent now has changed.  My children have grown up, my mom passed on, and I am working to reach as many children as possible to have fun with art, to be creative, and to keep their creations as a past reminder of a day in their childhood!  Some children have never had the opportunity to paint before we visited their school.  Some of the children can't get past the joy of washing their paintbrush and watching the water change color.  No matter what the joy is, I am there sharing it with them.  I feel blessed every day I can make a child smile.  I like making those amazing teachers smile too!
