Melissa Weiss

Melissa Weiss is a studio potter located in Asheville, NC. Not only does she makes each piece by hand -- wheel thrown, pinched, slab constructed -- Melissa digs her own clay off her land in NW Arkansas! Pieces are glazed and high fired in a gas reduction kiln. The high temperature firing brings out the unique nuances in the wild clay, such as iron specks and small fissures. Each piece is a functional, food safe, one of a kind piece of art.
