Ladyfern Clay was created as a personal outlet to create ceramics and follow my lifelong interest in clay. I wanted the branding to encompass both the natural, earthy side of clay art with the delicate and modern feel of many of the pieces.
After moving to Des Moines, I rediscovered my love for clay at Kunzler Studios. This work blends functional pottery pieces with my love for illustration and image making techniques derived from screen printing. Many of the pieces incorporate resist designs created from sketches, that are digitized and turned into vinyl. These images are used on the pottery to manipulate the glaze, leaving a clean image surrounded by beautiful colors. Today, this lady often incorporates ferns and florals while creating with clay, living true to the name Ladyfern Clay.
