I have an aversion to mass-produced goods used in intimate interactions. I strive to bring forth tranquility through minimalistic design, while retaining a sense of playfulness with palette and quality of marking. Functional ceramics are a way I communicate to others, to those who invite these objects into their homes, and incorporate them in their routines.
Mindful of traditional methods, I focus on the complete form as a stand-alone object. In giving you a handmade vessel from which to sip, I seek to bring a realization that we are not meant to be disconnected from objects we use everyday.
Audrey Long is a ceramicist and gallerist living in Astoria, OR. With dirt, her hands, glass and fire, Audrey makes functional ceramic pieces that are well though and utilitarian. Each hand-thrown and individually glazed, with handmade glazes, in shapes and color that feel good.
