Meet Avesha Michael
What Do You Love Most About Working With Porcelain?
I love the strength yet softness of porcelain. It’s so pure and simple, yet so challenging at the same time.
What Are Your Favorite Materials to Work With?
I tend to work very simply, so just clay and glaze. However, on the retail end a good splash of gold has been a staple in recent years.
Walk Us Through Your Creative Process. Where Does it Begin?
I began at 8 years old in Chicago and I don’t think my [technique] has changed very much. Clay is a part of me, and while I often wish I would draw and sketch more, I just work more organically… I sit down and create. Most recently, I push myself to turn what I perceive as a “disaster” into something else and go with the flow. This shift has lent to some of my favorite designs, the less than perfect yet totally unique pieces that I could never have “tried” to create.
What Are You Working on Right Now?
I recently found a hand built vase I made about 20 years ago that I, for the first time, love. It’s uneven, rustic and awkward and I’m developing a new line to sell in trios. I’m excited about veering away from the wheel more and leaning into more organic forms.
Modern or Traditional?
Modern twist on traditional?
Favorite Color and Why?
I tend not to have favorite anythings, but taupe. I love a good taupe.
Favorite Place You Have Traveled To?
I like to think I haven’t been there yet, but to date Siena, Italy.
If You Could Live in Any Other Era, Which Would it Be?
Solely for the music, the Jazz Age.
