Molly Hatch Ceramicist

June 25, 2010 | By | Comments (2)

The work of Molly Hatch, an American ceramicist living and working in Northampton, Massachusetts, has me quite inspired lately which is why I'd like to share her work with you today. You will love this introduction!


Molly attended the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, where she earned her BFA and then at the University of Colorado, Boulder, where she received her MFA, her work is becoming increasingly popular and for good reason, it's unique and beautifully crafted. 





I spotted her shop on Etsy awhile back but was reminded recently to look at her portfolio again since she is currently part of a show at the The Clay Studio in Philadelphia. Aren't these pieces lovely? And furthermore, are her display boxes, also painted by hand like her ceramics, equally charming?

About her work Molly explains her inspiration and process, "I am attracted to the aesthetic qualities of familiar domestic objects and patterns and appropriate them into my work from both historical and contemporary sources. I crop original patterns, play with scale, remix and alter imagery with a contemporary
palette and altered scale. I aim to make useful and beautiful vessels
that are contemporary counterparts to their historical precedents. "

Have a lovely weekend!
