Formerly in textile and clothing design, potter Ariana Richie transitioned into making ceramics as a way to work with her hands more. She creates functional stoneware, intended to bring beauty to everyday life. Her aesthetic embodies nature and ease, in her words a “desire for simplicity in an overly sensory world and a holistic approach to life.” Ariana uses raw, naturally occurring, non toxic materials and recycles her clay scraps. Products are then shipped using biodegradable packing peanuts to reduced environmental impact. Some of our favorite pieces from Artisan Artifacts are her amazing coffee pour overs and her shallow bowls. Studio visits are available by appointment if you are in the Fort Collins, Colorado area.
