As the designer behind Paper & Clay, I make modern functional ceramics that are designed to be both beautiful and very usable. I draw inspiration from my love of Scandinavian design — in the design of my forms and development of glazes, but also in a broader sense. I love having simple but well made elements as a part of my own home, and I strive to create work that fits that form.
Each piece is made by hand with careful attention to detail, and each glaze has been carefully developed from scratch to create subtle and unique colors that mix and match harmoniously. I source many materials locally and all within the U.S. I’m committed to growing Paper & Clay slowly and sustainably in order to build a lasting brand that is committed to quality handmade ceramic wares.
I am in LOVE with my mug. It makes me happy every time I look at it and I love it feels wonderful on the lips making every sip just a little better. It also fits very nicely in my hand- something Ive had a problem with pretty mugs in the past is that they just don't feel comfortable. The sample color was one of a kind which made me feel so special.
This is the most beautiful mug I've had coffee from. Easy. Thank you Brit!
Superior quality handmade mug. Totally worth the wait, and there's something about a "made to order" piece that feels extra special. Favorite parts: the smooth as silk sanded bottom, and impressive lightness! Can't wait to add to my collection.
Absolutely perfect! Quick turn around and a lovely personal note. I look forward to purchasing more items in the future.
Paper & Clay is a small shop making small batches of handmade ceramics. My quantities are limited as I make most pieces from start to finish with these two tiny hands. I thank you so much for your patience concerning availability, and for your support of my work.
