Portsmouth, NH-based Erin Moran makes her vibrant, colorful pottery using her hands (not wheel thrown). All of her cups and bowls are done by hand building – either by pinching a ball of clay into a cup or bowl or pounding out a slab of clay for plates. With this process, her finger prints are left on each piece and leave a wonderfully tactile surface. Because of this process, no two pieces are ever the same. Erin is intrigued by both surrealism and folk art and her work is a blend of the two. The vibrant pottery brings a smile to everyone who sees (and feels) it.
