Terrafirma Ceramics: Pottery Handmade in New York
Terrafirma Ceramics is a working pottery studio located in the heart of New York City, designing and producing handmade functional American art Pottery. Known for its unique dinnerware and tabletop accessories, Terrafirma was founded in 1980 by artist Ellen Evans.
As owner and artistic director of the Terrafirma studio, Ellen’s creative focus is to design and produce high quality, functional works of art for the table and home using a unique, original process. Patterns are created by painting through textiles and lace using liquid porcelain to produce a distinctive “one of a kind” result. The base of warm, natural stoneware juxtaposed with vibrantly colored and patterned porcelain surfaces achieves the casual yet sophisticated look that has become her signature in both dinnerware and accessories.
