About Us


Hi, we're Annie & Paul! 

Annie started Rise and Shine Ceramics in March 2021. The small business was born out of a lot of dedicated work and love. When she started her business she had the mantra of staying humble and bringing joy into peoples lives. 

Annie and Paul's work is made with a heavy dose of tender loving care that will translate to you when you hold your new mug or spice up your space with a cheerful planter or vase! 

They're married with three cute pets. They work together daily in their Humboldt Park, Chicago studio with their dog Rockie. They have a big thirst to make life interesting, solve challenges and work together. 

With peace and love! 



Our sweet baby boy, will be joining the team this July!

We deeply appreciate everyone's flexibility with us switcing to slip casting. It will be a lot easier on my growing body and our growing family!
We can't wait to welcome our little bugger into the world!
Much Love,
Annie and Paul
