how do you make your work?
I make everything by hand, either on a potter’s wheel or using hand building techniques such as pinching and coiling. I build with stoneware clay and fire to cone 6 in an electric kiln. Unless otherwise noted, I use food safe, non-toxic glazes to decorate my work, the majority of which are hand mixed from in-house recipes.
I work out of a small production studio in Ridgewood, Queens, shared with one other ceramicist.
is your work dishwasher and microwave safe?
Absolutely! Handmade ceramics always benefit from gentle handling and hand washing, but my pots can definitely withstand commercial dishwashers and microwaves.
do you take commissions?
I would love to work with you to create custom work for your home or restaurant. Most of my work is actually commissioned work, and I really enjoy the collaborative process of design. Please contact me to begin a conversation.
Please be advised that I charge fees for design work and sample products. Fees and discounts vary depending on the nature of your project and will be discussed in our initial emails. I’m happy to be able to offer a hospitality discount to restaurants.
