Susabella was founded by Susan Shapiro in November 2011. Susan previously owned a graphic and web design business for nearly ten years. After having her son she decided to take a break but missed having a creative outlet. Her mother-in-law who has done pottery for years, encouraged her to take a class and that's how it all began (thanks Margaret!). She soon discovered that she could blend her love of all things wedding, baby, home and pottery related into a new business crafting heirloom accessories and gifts.
We donate a portion of all proceeds to FeedingAmerica.org which helps provide low-income families with food.

Susan is a trailblazer, expanding her business from the early days in her garage to a ceramic studio with a full workforce. She’s always looking for new creative ways to grow her business. Even with all the hard work, Susan makes sure to keep things fun! When she’s not in the studio, Susan enjoys spending time with her husband, her son, and our studio mascot - Hazel the shih tzu! She loves a good happy hour, laughing and spending time with others.
People commonly ask how Susan came up with the name Susabella. Susabella was actually the nickname given to her by her grandmother, Nonna. Susan always admired her grandmother’s tenacity, dedication and strong work ethic. Due to that inspiration, Susan realized it was only appropriate to use Nonna’s name for her as the name for her business, and from that, Susabella, Inc. was born.
