Hi there! I'm a potter, found object artist, and educator living and working out of my sunroom in Cleveland, OH. I've been doing pottery since 2015, and in 2019 I started building out my home studio. Since then, I've been working hard to bring Sun Parlor Studio to life, (whether I knew that's what I was doing or not) and I'm extremely grateful to be here now. I've always wanted to start my own business with my art, and now I'm doing it! Woooo!
I graduated with a BFA in Sculpture + Expanded Media from the Cleveland Institute of Art in 2020. After I graduated, I was awarded grant funding by the Ohio Arts Council to be a Teaching Artist in Residence at Near West Intergenerational School in Ohio City for five months. Without that experience, I wouldn't be able to quit the grind of working multiple part-time jobs and start my own business. I'll forever be grateful for my experience teaching at NWIS as well as the Beck Center for the Arts, for giving me the confidence to pursue my own art business!
I believe in the value of play and joy in our everyday lives. I hope my work evokes curiosity and an appreciation for the mundane.
Where it all began
All Sun Parlor ceramics are made with love in my humble home pottery studio in Cleveland, OH. My studio is in my sunroom/mud room. I renovated this room in 2021 and it feels entirely different from the rest of the house. It's bright and inspiring and I love spending time in it. It has its own separate entrance at the back of the house, great lighting, and white walls and ceilings. The sunroom is where the making process begins. It houses the wheel, clay, slab roller, wedging tables, and shelves. Once all the greenware is completed, it gets fired in the kiln in the basement, and then glazed in the spare room attached to the sunroom.
