Hi, I'm Vanessa, owner and artist of Ceramic Shenanigans. I received my Bachelors in Studio Arts: Ceramics from Southern CT State University in 2017 and have been working as a goldsmith for about as long. I love to experiment with any medium I can get my hands on. Clay, paint, an arc welder, the pure joy of experimentation is my favorite part of the creative process and should be explored in every way possible. I recently upgraded to my very own ceramic studio and have been creating further shenanigans, currently in the form of vibrant wheel-thrown crackle pots.
