Marisa Burman Ceramics
Artist: Marisa Burman
Holiday Sales? Yes
Work: My ceramic work is primarily thrown on the wheel and hand-painted with underglaze. It is made from very durable porcelain clay which is food safe, and microwave and dishwasher friendly. I often color the clay itself using powdered mason stains. Then I paint on top of that colored background and fire the clay in a high-fire reduction kiln. I like to imagine each piece after it leaves my studio and continues its life in someone’s home. It brings me endless satisfaction to share with others and communicate through clay. I believe that daily rituals with handmade vessels can enrich our lives with joy, meaning, and community.
About: I am a ceramic artist from San Francisco. I have been making things out of clay for the past 15 years and find it to be an incredible source of ongoing learning and wonder. I currently reside in Richmond with my tiny parrot Louie, where I manage the ceramics studio at the Richmond Art Center. I love making and using handmade objects, working in porcelain, and teaching people about all things ceramic, especially throwing on the wheel and making colored clay.
