Yasha Butler

Material: Ceramics | Location: Ireland
I am an artist, designer and maker who is passionate about helping people experience beauty in the everyday. I work with clay to create objects that add a sense of calming poetry to our lives. From sculptural vessels to simple wall hangings, my work gives people the tools to craft spaces that they love living in. I am drawn to humble forms and earthy surfaces that have a depth of texture. My style is minimal, elegant and organic; and my main sources of inspiration are ancient pots and the beauty of the imperfect.

I coil build my vessels with a toothy grogged clay and then brush a wash of earthy pigments over their surface. This process allows me to create modern vessels that pay homage to forgotten lands.
