Ive been playing and testing lately, trying to focus on not striving for perfection but new ideas, processes, and techniques. Texture has always been my favorite aspect of scenic art and I have enjoyed trying to find pleasing textures for everyday pieces. Carved porcelain is a start. . . .. ... .... ... .. #ceramics#clay
This week’s #bklyncoffeecrawl is a cute cafe in Clinton Hill I frequent. @pecksfood’s little cafe Peckish! This lovely orange tumbler reminded me of the welcoming color scheme of Peckish. Grab a coffee and head over to the park, it’s spring! 🍑🍊 . .. ... .. . . #ceramics

Happy #mugshotmonday! This is one half of a set my partner took to Boston to deliver for me. A married couple friend of mine wanted some simple custom mugs that compliment each other. I’ll share the other half once they’ve been delivered! If you want a cute mug set for you and your boo, drop me a line. . .. ... .. . #mug

This tumbler is one of my personal favorites. No matter how many photos I take in different lights, with different angles, or different cameras, I can’t capture the subtle purple spray. The white almost eliminated it completely, but I promise it’s there! 💜 . . .. ... .... ... .. #ceramics#clay
Sometimes when I spray, the glaze can land on the inside of a piece in a lovely pattern. You can’t see that when it’s full of coffee, but I try my best to capture these details because they’re my favorite. . . .. ... .... ... .. #ceramics#clay
Waking up to the news of the terror attack in New Zealand has knocked the wind out of me. Friday’s are the day I work from home, walk my partner to the mosque for prayer, and usually post about something related to my store. I don’t have words today. This hate has to stop. Hug your loved ones an extra second before you say bye to them today. Do something kind for your local Masjid, or talk to your difficult relative. Every small step makes a difference in a world full of so much hate.
Here’s a cool blue sip in the sea of orange that has been my feed lately. This cup is perfect for a cortado, wine, or a little serving of yogurt. Lots of little cups similar to this under “small” on my Shopify. Link in bio! . .. ... .... ... .. . . #ceramics#clay
This week’s #bklyncoffeecrawl is a cute cafe on Bedford called @stonefruitespresso . Cortados, my favorite espresso drink are hard to make just right, in my opinion. You know a coffee shop is top notch if they serve you a perfect cortado. This cortado was perfect & I can’t wait to visit again! Swipe to see some of my favorite details of the cafe. . .. ... .. . . #ceramics
The weekends here have me all over, wearing many hats and playing various roles. There’s a comforting stillness to turning on the spray booth and mixing some glazes for the studio. I took this photo right after I did all the calculations and put my respirator on to start measuring. . .. ... .. . . #ceramics#clay
I love Fridays. I work from home and my partner who comes home Thursday nights works from my house. Lots of coffee, emails, photo editing, website stuff, writing, & planning. I try to have one full day away from my place of work in order to rest, recharge, and make sure my home is in order. . . Here is a photo of a lovely, big bellied mug. I’m in the process of perfecting this form but am very pleased with this first edition. . .. ... .. . . #ceramics#brooklynceramics ...

Not drawn by me! I am constantly blown away by how talented and hard working my friends are. I woke up to a message from @emily_holm with a photo of this drawing the other morning. Seriously it blew me away completely! I feel like it perfectly captures me and I couldn’t wait to share it with all of you. Emily and I met in Utah and always find a way to see each other for a few days here and there. Can’t wait for our next adventure! . .. ... .... ... .. . . #ceramics#clay ...

This week’s #bklyncoffeecrawl is a little different. I usually go to a cafe and take a photo, but this week I am trying to spend no frivolous money, which is mostly coffee shops tbh. I’ve been making a big French Press in the morning and bringing coffee to the studio and other odd jobs with me. I’ll be back next Wednesday with another cafe in Brooklyn to try. . .. ... .. . . #ceramics
I am STRUGGLING with this porcelain. I bought 25 pounds (and reclaimed another 15 pounds) so I’m committed. Decided to make these experiment pieces. They’re going to be carved, textured, and glazed with all materials already on my shelf I need to use. Who knows what are in store for these? Any suggestions? . . .. ... .... ... .. #ceramics#clay
