Shop Meg Does Pottery
2. WHAT IS YOUR STYLE AND AESTHETIC?
Oh wowowowowow. It’s a buffet of ideas at all times! Its like a funky grandma / whimsical art nerd / cat and alpaca lover with a side of trendy. I try to incorporate a little fashion, use fun color stories and I love designing new patterns for my piece
3. TELL US ABOUT YOUR ARTISTIC PROCESS
I try to release a few new pieces each season / twice a year. So usually that means a few new plate designs a year or new color options for more permanent pieces. I consult my 100’s of saved photos of colours and references and just start playing. There are many tests. But my main focus is making pieces that I don’t see out there in the market - I make objects that I desire. I also create with the idea in mind that it’s a limited run or collection - some pieces have been kept around for a few years because they are super timeless. Overall I make pieces that reflect my personal times.
4. WHAT GETS YOU INSPIRED WHEN YOU NEED IT?
Fashion and art documentaries… visiting galleries and museums - sometimes a deep dive on instagram - I love looking at other artists who work in different mediums then my own.
5. WHAT'S ON YOUR CURRENT PLAYLIST?
I’ve been travelling back in time and listening to vintage rock from the 60/70’s
