Adria does Ceramics

Ceramics has been a big part of my life. I made pots throughout high school, continued after graduating by working in independent studios and community college courses in Washington state and did a home stay with some potters in South Korea back in 2002. Then I went to school for and pursued a career in graphic design and didn’t touch clay again until early 2019. I thought I would just play around a bit while I took a break from working in graphic design, but I can’t stop.

At this time, I feel compelled to make pots. At this time, I am finding a way to balance these two ways of making. Ceramics feeds a creative impulse that is difficult to put into words. Clay holds endless possibilities, it feels almost addictive—there is always a new form to try or perfect, patterns, textures, techniques and colors to try. Besides the making itself, I find joy in knowing my pots have lives of their own in other people’s homes.
