About the Artist
Abby Lou Pottery is for people who strive to live a handmade lifestyle and think that the things we use should be beautiful, functional and inspiring. I create porcelain functional ware, with custom, bright glazes. Works are either wheel thrown or slip casted, showcasing a variety of surface treatments with a playful touch.
My interest in functional pottery comes from my belief that they are necessary, yet overlooked common objects that play a very important role in our everyday lives. I’m really interested in how we consume and the way we are connected to our food and drink. So much work goes into each important step of creating things to eat and drink; growing, processing, cooking, fermentation etc. Very similar to all the steps of working with clay. I try to create forms that will showcase the work put into creating the product and celebrate the act of eating, drinking, and sharing a meal with friends.
