Lakeside Pottery is much more than a ceramic art and craft studio. Owned by Patty Storms and Morty Buchar of Stanton, Connecticut, this husband and wife duo takes the old adage “Say No to Crack” to a whole new level!!! Check out these pictures for example:
Yes, Patty and Morty have some amazing skills and some mad techniques for repair and restoration of broken ceramics and glass. They can take a broken, delicate piece that appears beyond hope, and work a special kind of miracle to bring it back to life. It’s truly incredible.

Don’t want someone else messing around with your precious ceramic art? If you feel adventurous enough to try ceramic repair on your own, Patty and Morty also offer a wide variety of tutorials on their website. Much like Protective Coating Company, Lakeside is very much about fixing your things!
Oh, did we mention? Patty and Morty use PC-7 and PC 11 epoxies as part of the solution to their ceramic repair projects. We love that!
The Lakeside story
In 2002, Morty Bachar chose to leave the corporate world behind and walk a different path in life. He and Patty took their mutual love for pottery and turned it into a successful small business that they run together in Connecticut. Since Lakeside Pottery opened its doors, the growing studio has had thousands of class enrollments for ceramic art, workshops, summer camps, children’s series, corporate team building activities, sculpting seminars, and teacher development and training courses. Lakeside Pottery is a busy place!
“Everybody’s success is our personal challenge,” says Morty of Lakeside’s goals. The growth of their business is buoyed by the many community relationships they forge along the way. “We really have a family here,” adds Patty. “Everybody who comes in joins the family. It’s very nice.”
So what are you waiting for? Get creative and FIX YOUR POTTERY!
