Molly Harper. Ceramic Artist.
Growing up in rural New Hampshire has imbued in me a love of the environment and the beauty of all New Hampshire's wild spaces.
In particular, New Hampshire’s iconic white birch trees have captivated me with their stark elegance and unique colors and textures. I aim to capture the feel of white birch and bring a touch of New Hampshire’s forests into your home with handmade stoneware lamps, vases, and other functional ware. Pieces are thrown on the potter’s wheel and meticulously textured and hand-painted. I continue to be inspired by the many things that make New Hampshire unique and look forward to exploring and expanding my body of work through my time in the studio.
My style is always growing and evolving as I continue to learn and explore new techniques and ideas. The pursuit of knowledge is endless and the ability of clay to change form and purpose alongside my many ideas and aspirations is something I greatly look forward to in a career as a ceramic artist.
