Renegade Craft Fair 2017

about

In 2016 I started Holly Coley Designs. A small ceramic art business that focuses on blurring the line between art objects and functional ware. I am deeply inspired by Japanese folklore, contemporary/ancient art, and animals. I come from a family of makers and artists.

Holly teaches hand building at Pinckney Clay SF .

magical realism 

Different clay bodies inspire me in different ways. A brown clay reminds me of sloths and earth, while a white clay can remind me of bones and ghosts. The possibilities in clay are endless. Real creatures can coexist with magical ones, familiar shapes can take on new feelings.
