About MerakiDesigned

Sales 1,461
On Etsy since 2013

Handmade pottery with soul, creativity and love.

Meraki (μεράκι) is a modern Greek word which means to do something with love, soul or creativity. It is often used to describe a situation where you put a part of yourself into what you do. That is exactly how I feel when I create pottery.

I started exploring the world of clay 19 years ago, when I took my first class at the Danforth Museum. There was something enchanting about taking a slab of clay and using my hands to shape it into a piece of art. After several years of hand building, the enchantment started to wear off. I hit a creative roadblock. It wasn't until two years ago that one of my instructors encouraged me to try the wheel again. Something magical happened that day. My creative spark was reignited. Thanks to wheel throwing my work has blossomed to new heights.

People often ask me what inspires my pieces. As you'll see in my portfolio, I'm not married to a single style. I let the clay determine what it wants to be formed into. I embellish my pieces with textures or colors that capture snippets of beauty from everyday life; an intricate design on a napkin, the texture on a pile of rocks by the Mediterranean seaside or the glowing embers buried within the depths of a fire.

I encourage you to browse my gallery. If you have any questions about my process, techniques or would like to place a custom order, please connect with me.

Frequently asked questions

What if my item arrives damaged?

Ceramics are fragile. I do my absolute best to package them safely for travel, but once USPS or UPS takes over the parcel, it’s safe arrival is entirely out of my hands. Please email me immediately at connect@merakidesigned.com, with you name, order number if possible, and photos of the damaged item including the box and packaging. You will receive a refund for the damaged item, minus shipping costs. If you are giving The item as a gift, please open and inspect your package immediately before giving it to your recipient. Refunds cannot be made if you fail to contact us within 5 days of delivery of your order. These are our policies, which you are agreeing to with your purchase.

I bought multiple items in separate orders to snag my favorites. Will you combine shipping?

I absolutely will if it’s safe to do so and refund any shipping overages back to you if it happens to cost less. If the items are too big or fragile, I may still ship individually to ensure they arrive at your door safely. Feel free to send me a message with your order numbers to have them combined. I do my best to sort them out automatically for you, but I appreciate the heads up.
