Simple pieces for everyday use with the desire to express the beauty with utility.

Hester’s Studio
ceramics
home & decor

Hester’s Studio creates handcrafted ceramics for the home, garden, and unique wearables. Nature that surrounds the studio in the Hudson Valley has heavily influenced the work. Hester draws inspiration from elements of daily life; landscapes, textiles, foliage, flowers and food. Hester strives to create simple pieces for everyday use with the desire to express the beauty with utility. Each piece is hand built with slab construction, using a strong white stoneware clay. Some pieces incorporate different elements such as leather and wood. Much attention is given to the layering of textures, creating asymmetrical compositions. Because everything is made by hand, no two pieces are exactly alike, each pieces imperfections are celebrated and this is what truly makes them one of a kind.

From an early age I had an interest in creating art. I hadn’t touched clay until I took a ceramics class in community college and from that moment I was instantly hooked, I loved the way I could manipulate the clay into whatever I wanted to. I then transferred to SUNY New Paltz where my passion for clay blossomed, and went on to receive my BFA in Ceramics. The love for clay continued after graduation where I completed a residency at Watershed Center for the Ceramics Arts in Newcastle, Maine.

I create my work at my home studio in the Shawangunk Mountains, located in the Hudson Valley. Along with home decor, I also produce ceramic sculptures, where I explore human emotion. I examine the uncomfortable and awkward, quiet and internal moments, universal emotions we all go through and understand. I love that because everything is made by hand no two pieces are exactly alike, I celebrate each pieces imperfections and this is what truly makes them one of a kind.
