So much more beautiful than pictured. A unique sea life inspired work of art that gets a lot of attention from visitors and is a centerpiece in our home.

Updates

These babies take days to make, slowly building and setting on soft foam. But when they are high fired and glazed they are super strong, and worth the effort, I think. 3 blue and 3 white are in stock now.
Shop update today! Three new tentacle Ikebana vases, and new blue dandelion rattles too.
Gallery vases are back in the shop and on sale.This one is now $100 off!

About

Whatever's good for your soul...Do that.

Chelsea Mae is a sculptor of textural, organic forms. Working in ceramics was the obvious choice, raised as a nature lover playing on the clay shores of Arizona’s lakes.
She pays homage to natures intricacies, sculpting earth and minerals, often with the addition of materials varying from beach sand to fabric, then transforming them by fire.
She found her passion for sculpture while apprenticing in large scale bronze sculpture installations with Terry Thornsley of Laguna Beach. Entrenched in the local art scene she has curated mixed-media shows, and exhibited Ceramic Sculptures in galleries including Ethos Contemporary Art, Newport Beach, the Victor F. Keen in Las Vegas, and in Four Eyes Art Collective Exhibitions in Los Angeles and Newport Beach.
The goal of her current work is to “capture the intricate flow, texture, and energies of nature filtered through human hands.” Her collectors include businesses, museum gardens, and private residences internationally.
Each piece takes weeks to months to produce from carving, drying, firing, glazing, and firing again. Handmade one at a time, like things used to be.

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

I am now taking custom orders, for very patient people. I don't have much control over firing time, since I use a community kiln. Lead time is generally 4 to 8 weeks, longer for larger orders.
A new custom design, will incur a 30% design fee.
If you need something soon please choose from the listings, all are ready to ship.

Contact me to discuss large installation and bulk orders. Because of the handmade nature of my items, there is no savings for me when making multiples, still hand built one at a time. However, I do give a price break on orders over 10 items.
I LOVE big art installations, just send me your proposals.

Shipping

I'm a tree hugger. I use only recycled packaging and non-gmo air popped POPCORN for shock absorption. You can eat it, feed it to your cat, or compost it. It's the most Environmentally friendly packaging! **Please let me know if you are allergic to corn though, I will use an alternative.

My hard work is packed with the greatest of care, but every once in a while they're not handled nicely.
If a piece arrives broken please save the box with all the packaging and send me pictures of everything for the insurance. I may be able to make you another or choose to refund.
