Wheel-Thrown and Whimsical Handbuilt Wares

I focus on forms that I love and use, and--when I can--like adding a bit of humor to my work. I pull my inspiration from nature, from the streets of New York City (where I lived for 9 years), and from a variety of historical periods. Mix all that and you get pieces that are completely unique.

I have been smitten with throwing clay on the wheel since I was very young, but only embraced it as a means of expression much later. There is a romantic and meditative nature that drew me to working with clay, a deep history going back thousands of years that speaks of an art where practical needs meet self expression and deeply held beliefs. Like any art, there is also a tremendous amount of effort that goes into each piece. I have been working with clay for roughly 7 years and I cannot imagine ever feeling like I've learned all there is to know about the art.

I've dedicated a lot of love to each piece and it is my greatest hope that some of that shines through.

    I am a ceramicist based in NYC, but raised in Ohio. My work comes from my deep love of nature and the amazing urban jungle that is my home. I specialize in functional wares and whimsical, handbuilt pieces.

Hello and welcome to Handcrafted by J. Petras. As I explore all the possibilities of working with clay, I tend to create unique items for the pure joy and challenge of it. My ideas are inspired by nature and the vibrant artists' world of NYC and Ohio (the birth place of commercial ceramics in the US), so if you are diggin' something I am doing in particular, get it while you can! And also let me know what you like! I may just do more.

All of my work is stoneware, either white or brown, and has been fired in a cone-6 electric kiln. All of my kitchen/servingware is microwave safe, and can be heated in an oven up to 500 degrees. To preserve the finish on each piece, I do recommend washing them by hand, though they are dishwasher safe.
