MJW Ceramics was born from my passion to create utilitarian objects with a whimsical flair, that elevate your daily rituals. Each piece showcases clean form and intricate, yet purposeful, decoration. My inspiration comes from a multitude of sources and historical art movements, which I enjoy combining to evoke a sense of enchantment for the viewer.
My work is all handmade from strong, durable porcelain and food-safe glazes, high fired to cone 10. Most of my work is dishwasher and microwave safe as well, with the exception of pieces containing gold luster. I use a variety of techniques including wheel-throwing, hand-building, and slip-trailing.
There is immeasurable value in using hand-made objects in daily life — especially objects as essential as tableware, made from material as humble as clay. My hope is for my pottery to bring joy and inspiration to those who use it.
