Artist's Statement

NEW: Find me this year at CRAFTWORK SOMERVILLE! I'll be exhibiting alongside a glorious abundance of textiles and fiber work from local artisans. From ceramics to hand-crafted wooden boards, knits, botanical dying, and shibori, jewelery and original works of art. Follow along on Instagram (craftworksomerville + michellebarrettceramics ) for all the of-the-moment updates, and don't miss it!

About me:

I find thematic inspiration from nature and urban living, and regularly incorporate subtle hand-painted, glazed, and carved elements that evoke memories of city, seaside, and woodland exploration.

The pieces go through a process of time and love during their making, and it is my intention that the inclusion of special, one of a kind ceramics brings the owner a deeper sense of connection to their day through their use.

In this fast-paced world full of temporary pleasures and fleeting trends, I hope that my ceramics find their way to you, call your attention to each impermanent moment, and bring joy.
