 We are in Love with your work! What made you get into ceramics & is it your full time gig?

Thank you!!!  I initially got into ceramics because I was craving an artistic outlet that I could make with my hands. I've always been an artist in some capacity. I studied photography my whole life, went to college for it, and even grew up with a darkroom in my house.  However, after the digital revolution happened and film became a thing of the past, I sort of lost my love for the medium. I then spent my 20's designing jewelry, mostly ghost designing for other people's lines. It was amazing, but I started to crave something more sustainable, ethical, and more my own.  I took a ceramics class 5 years ago and never looked back.

I'm super lucky to say that ceramics is basically my full time gig. I've kept  my part time job and the amazing shop Midland because I still like having a little bit of security and I'm genuinely obsessed with the shop and the women that own it and work there :)

What is your favorite piece or style of work you've created? 

My favorite piece is the loop vase. It feels stylistically like something my parents/grandparents would have in their homes. I describe the loops and most of work as having a Modern California vibe which is the aesthetic I grew up with. Plus they make it really easy for you to look like a floral master :)
