The home is a sacred and personal space, but sometimes you can take the importance of everyday objects for granted. It is worthy to surround yourself with meaningful objects that are well cared for. My work is a small part in helping to bring back an appreciation for handmade, quality goods.
My name is Elizabeth Benotti and my work explores the relationships between everyday objects, color, image and form. Using porcelain, I interchange slipcasting, handbuilding and wheelthrowing techniques. The objects act as a canvas for drawings that can be found on most of my work. The drawings are all inlaid into the clay using a traditional mishima process and the decorative colors are hand painted.
Currently I reside in Eliot, ME and create all the wares in my Rollinsford, NH studio.
