About Me

About Rachel Thornton and The Village Lane:

Greetings! I’m Rachel Thornton, and I’m delighted to introduce you to The Village Lane, a sanctuary where pottery, therapy, and the essence of home converge.

Healing Hands in Clay:

My journey with pottery began as a personal quest for solace amidst the rigors of my career as a nurse. The soothing touch of clay under my fingers became a lifeline, a respite from the stress and demands of the healthcare world. Pottery has been my therapy, an anchor to ground me in moments of chaos, and a means to reconnect with myself.

Inspired by English Villages:

My time living in the picturesque villages of England left an indelible mark on my soul. The quaint cottages, cobblestone streets, and cozy, inviting homes spoke to me in a profound way. The essence of those villages, where every home was a story waiting to be told, continues to inspire me.

Home is Where the Heart Is:

At The Village Lane, the concept of home lies at the core of everything I create. Pottery, for me, embodies the warmth, comfort, and beauty of home. Each piece is a labor of love, a reflection of the belief that our homes should be a sanctuary where we find solace and inspiration.

Sharing My Inspirations:

I pour my heart into crafting each piece at The Village Lane, infusing them with the tranquility and beauty I’ve found in pottery and the homes of England. It’s my hope that others will find joy and inspiration in my creations, just as I have. These pieces are more than just objects; they’re a piece of my journey, waiting to become a part of yours.

Join Me on This Creative Voyage:

Whether you seek the serenity of pottery as therapy, the beauty of handcrafted home decor, or simply want to share in my passion for all things inspired by the heart, The Village Lane welcomes you with open arms. Together, let’s celebrate the art of pottery and the cherished concept of home.

Thank you for taking a moment to discover The Village Lane, where clay, therapy, and the love for home come together in perfect harmony.

With warmth and gratitude, Rachel Thornton Founder, The Village Lane
