I have always been delighted by beautiful fabrics and yarns … I am a bit of an obsessed collector . I love to make practical unique wearable art.. by reusing, reclaiming and recycling most of my materials, my studio is chock full of all kinds of fabric, trims and yarn …
I’ve always had a fascination, as far back as I remember, with jewelry and all things sparkly. In my teenage years I started collecting vintage costume jewelry and my natural inclination was to explore how and where such beautiful objects were made. From working in design houses that opened in the 1930’s and 40’s I learned many of the old and lost techniques from some of the industries “old timers”. Today I’m a 10+ year veteran jewelry designer who enjoys inspiring others as well as exploring my own creative venues. Please note, my pieces are one of a kind so the items shown on this page may be subject to previous sale.
Andrew Nasser was born and raised in Fall River, MA, and has been working as a potter for the last two years in Warren, RI under the guise, Nasseramics. He primarily produces drinkware, dinnerware, and some decor. He prefers simple glazing techniques and lightly textured forms that interact in interesting ways. Being a full time graphic designer, he enjoys incorporating typography into his work as well. Each of his pieces has unique sayings on the foot ring, which makes it an experience for viewers to try to find one that resonates with their personality. His goal is not simply to create simple mugs and bowls that have one function, but something that can be a conversation starter.
Originally hailing from the Pacific Northwest and now residing in Tiverton, RI I tend to incorporate elements of the ocean and farmland into my pottery. I have developed many of my own unique glazes that reflect the colors and feelings that are evoked in me while being surrounded by the water and land.
