A story subject to change.


Tery Lively, Founder

Lively Ceramics LLC was started in November of 2020 by Tery Lively. He created the company to share his passion for making pieces with the goal of having them be cherished by you for years.


In 2009 he enrolled in his first ceramics course during his freshman year at Paint Branch High School. Thanks to his supportive teacher, he developed a connection wtih the wheel. Having taken a ceramics course every semester of his remaining high school career, it was clear that he had found something that brought him joy. 

The idea behind Lively Ceramics LLC had been forming for years, in 2018 it began to take shape. A transpacific journey on a sailboat from Hawaii to Sydney, Australia provided the catalyst needed to start a small business. Slowly but surely the idea has grown from its roots tied to that high school classroom, into something that is still only in it's infancy. Tery hopes you'll follow along as Lively Ceramics LLC continues to grow.
