LAURA ZINDEL

Laura Zindel is an artist and designer who combines her passion for ceramics and naturalist illustration into unique housewares. Her work integrates techniques from the Arts & Crafts movement with modern industrial design practices and decorative arts inspired by the natural world. A ceramist by training, Laura has always loved to draw with a pencil.


Her initial drawings on the surface of clay with a glaze pencil ultimately led her to the transfer process for creating commercial works; her drawings are now silkscreened and printed as enamel transfers. This process also lent itself to repetition, allowing Laura to create exquisite surface patterns from her drawings on a wide variety of homewares.

MICHELLE BARRETT

Boston, MA With an organic aesthetic, and a pull towards fresh and simple finishes, Michelle’s line of ceramic tableware is beautiful, imperfect, and modern. Each piece
is thrown, built, and finished by hand, then fired twice to a final temperature of 2300+ degrees for maximum strength and durability.Michelle finds thematic inspiration from nature, and regularly incorporates subtle hand painted, glazed, or carved elements that evoke memories of woodland and seaside exploration.

FOREST CERAMIC CO

 

Orcas Island, WA Owner and maker Sean Forest Roberts and his partner Val. With a background in chemistry and four years of work experience in science labs, Sean brings an experimental mindset to my artistic process. “My work is constantly changing as I explore new ways of creating pattern, texture, and form. I am deeply fascinated by the underlying randomness in the patterns and structures of nature, and I attempt to replicate some of those effects in my work.

 

Note: Slipcasting refers to the layering of ceramics. The first layer is formed in the mold followed by layers of other colors one at a time once the one before dries. Each piece is then hand carved before firing. Each slipcasted piece takes about a week to create. The other pieces have glazes which are poured into the mold. This makes it so he is able to create similar glazes on each piece.  Each piece is dish washer safe, microwavable safe and suitable for hot or cold drinks. His idea is to make very functional pieces.

JASON BORDERS

Kelso, WA Hand carved animal skulls. “I do not plan my designs. At all. I don’t think I would have the patience to finish anything if I did. Im convinced that you'll get better results from sticking to a simple approach that incorporates randomization, improvisation, intuition, etc. than thorough planning. A large part of what I do involves a
familiarization with death. My belief is that, as painful as it can be, looking directly at death helps you to live your life with intent and purpose. In this light, the work I do delves into a place where the lines between life, death, fantasy and reality are blurred.”
