O.C. Tanner is the exclusive retailer in Utah for Terrafirma Ceramics, a working pottery studio in New York City that designs and produces handmade pottery, dinnerware and table settings. Artist Ellen Evans starts with unique shapes and natural stoneware. She then creates patterns by painting liquid porcelain through textiles and lace. The warm tones juxtaposed with vibrantly colored and patterned porcelain surfaces creates a casual yet sophisticated look.
“Don’t be afraid to mix it up. For example, pair an expensive vase with casual dinner plates. Blend patterns, textures and colors. The balance of yin and yang makes people comfortable.” – Bob Martin, Home & Lifestyle Buyer
