Sienna Ceramics is now Solar-Powered!

Working in both functional and sculptural realms, my ceramic creations stem from my background as a cook, plant-lover, and mystic. My work is an ongoing study of curvaceous form, color relationships, environmental beauty, and cosmic abstractions that often have a feminine, or science fiction feel. I am inherently inspired by food plants, foraging, and the local, farm-to-table movement which connects us to the natural cycles of the year, and ancestral methods of food preservation.

In an age of bland, mass-produced vessels, the small-batch, handmade pot blurs the lines between functional object and art or spiritual object. The inherent variations and imperfections give the object individuality, and these handmade and handpicked objects are often revered within their homes as something special. With a small number of pieces produced, direct distribution allows for a personal connection conducted by the vessel. This direct connection between the maker and the keeper conveys a special energetic quality that transcends the substratal material.
