About

Beaconsfield Designs began as a joint venture with my sister as an excuse to get together and be crafty. It has since evolved into a full time venture for me. Introduced to throwing pottery when I was an Illustration major at Parsons in New York, I continued taking classes after graduation and eventually invested in my own studio equipment. So now when I'm not drawing caricatures, or tattooing, I'm most likely found in my studio playing with clay. The stoneware pieces are hand painted and instilled with a sense of gesture and movement. Each piece is unique. Utilizing lead free glazes, the functional pottery is oven, microwave, and dishwasher safe. The beads are made from the leftover clay bits and glazes from my pottery studio. I'm not a big fan of waste - either time or material - so instead of knitting at the end of the day, I roll and paint beads....I've always had a hard time sitting still...;) Also, I have another shop on Etsy…
