Creating functional ceramic objects and international travel have been integral to my life for many years. As a full-time ceramicist, I merge foreign customs and cultures with a contemporary style to build clay pieces that embody the interconnectedness in our world.

 All of my pottery is 100% handmade by me.  I work with a variety of stoneware clays, both on the pottery wheel and through hand building. My work features cultural fusion, vibrant colors, black and white silhouettes and organic shapes and textures. Many of my pieces use Sgraffito (in Italian "to scratch") in which I apply layers of colored slip (liquid clay) or underglaze to a clay object and then scratch off eye-catching designs that reveal the clay underneath.  Others are painted with black slip and/or colorful underglazes to reveal mid-century modern shapes and patterns.

My structures are simple and contemporary, and each item is individually crafted with its own unique look. On my website you can view collections of everyday use vases, serving trays, cups, plates, bowls and more.  All pieces are dishwasher and microwave safe.     

I do offer custom commissions! If you have a requests, please contact me at Ljakobsberg@gmail.com. I am experienced in matching existing tableware sets for consistency, as well as creating something entirely new for you or for gifts.
