Welcome to RossLab

This is me

I grew up in Italy then started to explore this beautiful world of ours. After living four years in Ireland I moved to California, U.S., where RossLab is now based.

I have loved art and made things all my life, but I discovered my love for clay only few years ago. What I like the most about making ceramics is to know they will share and brighten someone else’s home.

When I am not at the potter’s wheel, I like making photographs, watching old films, spending time with my beloved husband and cat (strictly in this order!) walking in the woods and looking at the ocean.

This is my shop

I decided to open my shop when I had no more room at home to store my pieces. I started selling different ceramics for different styles, then I began working on specific designs and shapes to give an unmistakable look to my creations.

The longer I work with clay and experiment with my creativity the clearer my style appears: colorful and non conventional, dreamy and playful.

I make all my products by hand and with love, from start to finish, and I believe in making special things for special people to enjoy everyday.

Welcome to RossLab and thanks for visiting my shop!

I hope that you’ll love my handmade creations and I’ll make every effort to ensure that your shopping experience is smooth and enjoyable.

Each piece is made and painted by hand so there will be slight differences in size, color and shape of matching items.
I believe this is the beauty of it: every piece is unique!

I make functional pottery and all of my pieces are food-safe and lead-free. They are also dishwasher and microwave safe, although hand washing and infrequent microwave use will prolong the life of your piece.

Feel free to contact me via Etsy if you have any questions at all and I’ll be happy to assist you.
