A Project Sneak Peek
More About Our Maker
Together with her husband Jonathan, Melissa designs and creates one-of-a-kind mugs, planters, vases and bowls from her warehouse studio in the Arts District of downtown Los Angeles. Melissa’s background in art and design informs the distinctive look of her ceramics, and her unique approach is inspired by the landscape and lifestyle of Southern California, studio pottery of the 60’s and 70’s and natural forms. The decorative palette focuses on toasted whites, exposed clay and hand carving which echos the desert and mountains of the West. Melissa loves to bring in the wabi-sabi elements of the hand, so that each piece, although part of a group, has a lovely unique identity of it’s own.
Melissa’s use of layered and exposed clay combined with her geometric and freehand carving techniques allows for a great deal of creativity and diversity in a finished project for the home.
