Meet the Maker

Hello! I'm Claudia, owner and soap maker at Copper Soap Works. I've been an artist my entire life, always dreaming, creating and making. I'm a retired wedding and portrait photographer, and avid knitter and spinner. Whenever a spare moment can be found, you'll find me in the mountains, hiking, camping or kayaking.

After a long, exciting career in photography I was in need of a new creative outlet. Soap making proved to be the perfect way to channel that artistic energy and share my passion for living a natural and chemical free life with others. 

It's also given me the opportunity to give back to those most in need ... both in my local community and to organizations such as the Beauty Way Foundation in New Mexico. Over 500 bars of soap (and counting!) have been donated since 2020.
