I love this colorful, detailed jar. The wide mouth makes it so easy to use, and the creamy interior means that I can always see down to the bottom. The navy that outlines the colored "leaf shapes" really makes the design crisp. Thank you for all the extra effort made on the very bottom, and the inside of the lid!

Dawn's ceramics are absolutely beautiful and of impeccable quality. The small plate I bought is perfect for holding a bagel, slice of pie, cookies, snacks- anything you want to show off with her signature, hand-detailed glaze work. It'll make you feel fancy to eat off her one of a kind dishware. She ships fast and with lots of care (excellent packing materials) so you have no worries of items arriving safely. I would buy from Dawn again and again!
Pots have become a part of my daily life, enriching even the most familiar of daily routines.
I was born in an out of the way, town in northern upstate New York, called Massena. I wasn’t introduced to art and ceramics until late in high school but knew immediately that it was what I wanted to do. I then went to Alfred University where I received my BFA in 2003. At Alfred I used my first handmade bowl and have been using and making pots ever since. They have become a part of my daily life, enriching even the most familiar of daily routines.
My work is about function and pattern. It is important for the pieces to be dynamic; to stand out in a world full of everyday objects but to also invite familiarity and intimate use. I am interested in the relationship between history, it’s grand tradition and our small everyday experiences.
I have always been an organizer. I’m attracted to brick buildings, tiled roofs and knit cloth. For similar reasons I find myself attracted to Islamic tile and pottery, Persian painting and historical architecture. The patterns on the surfaces of my work are influenced by this interest in symmetry and the organization of like pieces. At first the patterns were an answer to a question. How do I activate the surface, to make these understated yet elegant forms seem less static? Through the varying quality of a hand drawn line, repetition of shapes and the addition of bright colors, the comfortable forms become more engaging. It’s about bringing an everyday object to the foreground.
I was born in a small town in upstate NY. In 2003 I graduated with my BFA from The NY State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. I hadn’t used a handmade pot until my sophomore year in college, but have been making and using them ever since.
