What I do and Why I do it

Hi guys, my name is Melissa! I'm from Portland OR and I'm passionate about ceramics.

For me, ceramics is an exploration of geological processes. I take a lump of mud (clay), shape it how I want it, and then fire it until it is basically a rock.

I also love to make these items intuitively. Meaning when I am making an item, I pay attention to my body and to the clay and try to figure out what it wants to become. What you see in my shop are the finished pieces of this experimental playful process.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy!

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

Custom Orders are on a case by case basis. Message me and we can talk about your unique vision. If I am too busy with my day job or other custom orders, it could take longer to make. But it doesn't hurt to ask!

Care instructions

All of my pieces are dishwasher, microwave, oven, and food safe unless otherwise indicated in the items description. All items are not floor-safe though, be careful not to drop your newly purchased piece!
