Hi! I'm Olivia, and I love to make things. I am an architect by training and I live in Houston, TX with my husband and baby son.
Before moving to Houston in 2017, I lived in Philadelphia, where I fell in love with ceramics at The Clay Studio with their magical community of artists creating, teaching and learning in the same space. Since moving to Houston I have found a wonderful community of ceramic artists with Clay Houston, but I have transitioned to making work in my own space -- and so OCTceramics was born.
I fell in love with clay because it keeps you humble and connected to the earth, while transforming into objects that connect you to the hands that made them. I am currently experimenting with how forms can create their own layered surface decoration as they are dipped into underglaze and record their intersection with the liquid plane.
