About the Artist
Backyard ceramicist, Lacey Lomeli, works with flowers, plants and clay to create fun, colorful and funky ceramic pieces. Originally a landscape and floral designer, she blends her plant and floral knowledge into each of her ceramic designs. Inspired by the sun, desert flora and fauna, the colors of Mexico and the ocean, she curates each piece to transport you to a happy and sunny state of mind. She works out of her backyard pottery shed in Austin, Texas surrounded by her dog, chickens, plants and bees.
I'm exhilarated by the sun, desert flora and fauna, the colors of Mexico and the ocean and try to bring that excitement and emotion into my ceramic pieces. I combine bright colors, funky florals and cactus with unique ceramic shapes and form to create pieces that take you to a happy and sunny state of mind. Everything is built by hand using a variety of techniques. I do not use a wheel in any of my work. I build, dry, paint and fire all my pieces from my tiny backyard pottery shed in Austin, TX.
