Vessels + Sticks is a curated, online gallery focused exclusively on presenting contemporary ceramic artworks by artists from around the world.
We seek to be a destination and community for anyone interested in discovering ceramic artworks that are both contemporary in design and conceptual approach. We will provide relevant context about these works and make them available for purchase in one, easily accessible, online destination. Each artwork comes with a Certificate of Authenticity denoting details of the artwork’s originality and value.
We partner with talented ceramic artists worldwide who may be located in your own community, where you travel, or in places with which you may have a personal connection. Each artist provides a distinct point of view while sharing a common passion for the medium of ceramics. Approaching their practices with verve, individuality, and creativity, we are thrilled to share their work and stories with you.
What began in 2021 as an Instagram account Vessels + Sticks to document the unique and beautiful ceramic works that I was discovering through a myriad of sources, has morphed into a passion for curating contemporary ceramics and showcasing them together in one place.
With a background in art history and business, as well as a passion for design, I’m thrilled to present these ceramic works to you through one curated lens. I’ll seek to highlight the key aspects of the artists’ experiences, techniques and practices that inspire their work and facilitate our connection to it. I’ll also provide as much design context as possible so you can easily imagine how to live with these beautiful pieces.
Shining a light on the field of ceramics and providing a source of inspiration for many has been an absolute pleasure, and I’m excited to continue the journey with our Vessels + Sticks online gallery.
