Stephanie's work makes us want to head north and experience the Canadian wilderness for ourselves! Inspired by the nature just outside her back door, Steph's clean-lined sgraffito imagery combined with lovely layering combinations makes for unique wares that emulate the night sky. We love her creative use of ceramics to express her own imaginative interpretation of the mountains and forests that surround her.

#howiAMACO InstaFeature - Ave Rivera

Every time Ave's work pops up on our Instagram feed, this girl always has us smiling. The punny witticisms and adorable faces bring her work to life on so many different levels while the heart, cloud, and cartoonish animal imagery that frequent her work companied with bold pops of color and gold lustre always make for bright, cheery pieces.

#howiAMACO InstaFeature - Tiffany Thomas

Tiffany's rough-cut, nature-inspired wares gripped our attention right away. Using a beautiful combination of underglaze washes, staining, and lustres, her work draws inspiration from the tallest mountain peaks all the way down to the depth of the ocean. From gemstone decorated mugs to asymmetrically faceted cups and vases, none of Tiffany's pieces are ever quite the same, each piece a unique and beautiful creation in its own right.

#howiAMACO InstaFeature - Shannon Abac

Beauty is often exemplified in simplicity, and Shannon Abac’s work is no exception. She’s a ceramicist based in San Francisco, California. Her work is characterized by black and white patterns and the repetition of simple shapes and lines on each piece make for deceptively simple but beautiful pieces. Abac’s wares include planters, plates, mugs, and spoons all delicately decorated with intricate line work, dots, or organic shapes that have us scrolling and smiling.

#howiAMACO InstaFeature - Morgan Gochnauer

Morgan is an enthusiastic young potter based out of Pennsylvania whose Instagram feed is full of charming mugs (with the occasional lidded jar, coaster, or candle holder sprinkled in). Her beautiful use of layering glazes is what really caught our eye. Morgan is unafraid of color, favoring blues, pinks, and creams, and her work is characterized by her favor of speckled clays, which give her work a quirky, freckled look.

#howiAMACO InstaFeature - Aimee Belanger

Aimee Belanger is a Boston-based teacher and artist who has worked in many different mediums including painting, ink, and (of course) clay. We were attracted to the simple lines, high contrast, and imagery of her wares. Pictures of her work often pair it with smudge sticks and crystals, creating an eclectic and otherworldly feel that compliments the runic, lunar, and elemental imagery found in her plates and pendants.
