I found clay at an early age and was hooked! This passion took me through college where I received my BFA in Sculptural Ceramics. After school I traveled the country living in amazing places that remain a part of me and inspire my pieces. It was on this journey that Ignite Creative Studio came to life. The word Ignite encompasses this company because fire is at the heart of everything. Fire sparks the passion for creating and it is fire that finishes the clay pieces. My mind stays busy with new products and illustrations. I find inspiration comes from two key places, my environment and the people in it. Visual inspiration is abundant living where I do now in beautiful Northern Michigan. While I work the clay and draw the designs on each piece I think about my clients and strive to create a functional work of art they will be proud to use in their daily lives and feature in their homes. My name is Meghan Merkey and I am the woman behind Ignite Creative Studio.
