Fickle Pottery is a small pottery studio-boutique based in Pinehurst, North Carolina – taking pride in creating a range of unique, one-of-a-kind every day things. Each beautiful piece is handmade and crafted with lots of love and light.

Owned and operated by Maegan Lea and her husband, every lovely little pot is created in their modest garagé studio, where you can typically find them fighting over valuable work space! A pottery favorite to the Pinehurst and Southern Pines areas, you can shop fickle at local stockists or here online.

With my own quiet style, I like to switch things up a lot – if you see something you like, grab it! – there will not be another just like it. Even when I remake a piece it’s not exact. With the main focus on beauty over production – I strive to make simple, happy pots that bring joy to the everyday.  I am continually inspired by nature, other artists and modern-minimal everything. Creating functional beautiful pieces that are simplistic and mix in well across many decor styles is what I strive for.

When you pick up a fickle mug or dotted vase, the hope is that you appreciate what is shared through using something that is hand-crafted and made with love and thought.  In a world where everything is busy and ever more techy, it's so important to remind ourselves of the simplicity in the everyday small things, and how they keep us in-tune with ourselves. My aim is always to create something that makes the day feel more beautiful and more grounded.  Hopefully, that feeling translates and reminds you as well when you use your Fickle Pottery.


Often I am asked about the name, “Fickle Pottery”. Growing up my mama always told me I was too fickle. And I am. So – Fickle Pottery! It’s really the only name that would ever do, since I switch things up all the time…


“…pottery for me began by happenstance, to pass time while job hunting after college. Dear family and friends, waiting tables and craft shows, all kept my little hobby alive. As time rolled on, it became my career focus and passion – one that I am thankful to be able to share as I do today.
