Brittany Trushin creates ceramic objects designed for utility and ritual use in the home, including vases and planters, utilitarian everyday wares such as cups, plates and bowls as well as unique items meant for use in ritual i.e. oil burners. Brittany designs and creates all items in her home studio in Richfield, MN.
My ceramic designs are the result of nearly 10 years of study and experimenting with the material, process and utility of clay. A lot of my designs are meant to become living sculptures customers homes, holding a plant or bouquet. Unique designs draw people in to a tactile experience with each piece. My ceramic work contrasts pottery with a more traditional narrative, asking users to think about the way that we interact and live with art in our everyday rituals such as watering plants, lighting candles or storing jewelry. These pieces are designed and produced entirely by me. I am proud to be part of a vibrant, local Minneapolis craft community. I make a living by creating these objects for people to use and love in their everyday lives. – Brittany Trushin
Brittany’s ceramic designs are made for longevity with high quality materials–pieces are made to last a lifetime. she uses a “waste not” philosophy in her studio practice, recycling and reusing materials whenever possible. Her work is fired to a mid-range temperature instead of high temperatures, reducing energy consumption. Having a home studio space with a small footprint engages Brittany to be conscious about materials, waste and consumption on many levels. She also uses recycled and biodegradable packing materials whenever possible.
