Excuse the blurry photo.  You just can't capture those moves on film.  Or a phone.

About Theresa

AFTER busting out some serious moves to 90's hip hop, I get down to business in scrappy, Kerby Alley Studios in industrial N. Portland, along side 3 other multi-media artists who aren't afraid of a little old alley at midnight on a Tuesday.

I am a maker of armies.  A lover of old things made new.  A workaholic who doesn't know how to be anything else. 

Process

I can't seem to leave well enough alone. Not content to just create handmade ceramics, I like to infuse each piece with a lil extra love.  With an Exact-o knife, a bowl becomes a cheeky vessel for fruit.  A vintage whisky bottle, block of wood or lightbulb is transformed into a stunning vase, just by using a little plaster and slip. A wheel thrown orb turns into a vase that arranges your flowers for you.  I pride myself on creating things you didn't know you needed. 

Surface is just as important to me as the piece itself.  I spend hours upon hours tweaking my infinitely touchable, handmade satin glazes to create the perfect hue I have in my head.  Then it's just play, play, play.
