Announcement Handmade Ceramics by Michelle Smith McLaughlin
Handmade Ceramics by Michelle Smith McLaughlin
I'm a multidiciplinary artist that makes one-of-a-kind ceramic tableware out of Brooklyn, New York.
I grew up in Boston and studied photography officially, although I was always interested in working in clay. I took a few classes on the side whenever I could. After graduating, I worked in the photography industry as a fine art printer, retoucher, a freelance photographer. Shortly after I moved to New York, the ceramics world pulled me back in, and I have been selling my work ever since. I love designing and using functional artwork, I find it incredibly satisfying.
Water is a huge influence in my work; I think you can see that peeking out in the colors I use in my designs. I started swimming when I was very young. I have always lived near the water, in Boston and now Brooklyn. In the summer, I spend as much time as possible on a lake in Maine.

Additional policies and FAQs
I recommend hand washing and and I would avoid prolonged soaking of unglazed pieces. I use food safe, lead free glazes unless otherwise noted in the description. Dirt and stains on unglazed surfaces can be removed with a scrubby pad or a wire brush and a bit of baking soda.
