Caroline & Clay

“Designing my shoes, I’m thinking timeless. Not trendy.” - Christian Louboutin

Hi. I’m Caroline. I create minimalist, ceramic tableware in my studio in Chicago, IL.

My work is thrown on a potter’s wheel and fired in a kiln. I glaze it clear to let the natural beauty of the porcelain show. Each piece of porcelain ceramic is fired a second time in the kiln to achieve the food, dishwasher, and microwave safe level of quality I’m known for.  

Don’t let the seemingly simple aspect of my work fool you. Each design has hours of thought and hours at the wheel behind it. It’s incredibly discreet and beautifully functional. I want my designs to feel fresh and new even when they are decades old. 

My work is intended for everyday use and does not require any special care. All work is signed on the bottom. Each piece is hand thrown, trimmed and glazed so expect slight variations.

Thanks for shopping my pieces!
