Glasgow-based ceramicist Ciara Neufeldt creates functional and colorful mugs, plates, vessels, etc., with the desire to “bring fun, color, and celebration to everyday life through their use”. While studying at the Dundee’s Duncan of Jordanstones College of Art and Design, Neufeldt fell in love with clay. And since then, she has been following her passion.
Her business, Ciara Isabel Ceramics operates from a studio located in Glasgow’s East End, where all the magic happens.
“My aesthetic could probably be described as fun, cheerful and whimsical. I love bright colors, bold patterns, and a good dollop of gold,” she said in an interview with Ballpit.
It makes her joyous that people love buying handmade stuff. “Handmade objects act as a direct connection to the maker, and working as a ceramicist has shown me there is a huge amount of support for that in a world of mass-produced,” she continued.
A round-bellied vessel, inspired by American ceramicist Betty Woodman, the drunk zebra nerikomi mug, the cranberry nerikomi plate, etc. are some of her fun and whimsical creations inspired by everyday things.
