HOW IS IT MADE?

TAKE A GLIMPSE INSIDE THE POTTER’S STUDIO

ZZIEE Ceramics is the work of Elizabeth Eisenstein, a potter and ceramic artist who lives and works near Joshua Tree National Park in the desert of Southern California. Coming from a fine arts background, her handmade ceramics straddle the divide between pottery and sculpture, while drawing inspiration from the textures, colors, and shapes of the Mojave desert. When not playing with her cats or hiking with her husband, she can be found in her home studio crafting every mug, bowl, vase, and planter by hand on her potter’s wheel. Because all objects are wheel-thrown and/or hand-built (meaning: never made with a mold), their subtle variations give each piece its own unique personality.

MORE THAN JUST MUGS

UNIQUE CERAMIC ART

In addition to tableware and other functional pottery, Elizabeth Eisenstein also creates one-of-a-kind ceramic vases and sculptural objects. While some of these works are indeed functional, like her striped platters and vases, others are dysfunctional, like Licorice Tire on Bubblegum Mountain, which while technically being a vase, cannot be filled with water. Two of her ceramic idols are Ken Price and Ron Nagle, whose works continually remind her of the power of silliness, mystery, and absurdity in art. Ultimately, she strives to make unusual and occasionally funny handmade ceramics that feel good to touch and make people smile.
