Inesse is a design and production studio of interior ceramic decor and pottery wares. All work is uniquely designed and made in Minneapolis by ceramic artist, Ben Fiess.
My goal with my ceramic ware is to produce beautiful objects that will last for generations. Commercial production pottery and ceramic decor is widely available, however the design and artistry that goes into a lot of that work is generic and in service of lowering the production costs. I want to afford myself the time to make each piece unique and visually engaging, as well as durable so that people will not view it as disposable.
While clay is a renewable resource, the mining and transportation of it are environmentally costly. Ben strives to use my resources with great intention and reverence. Raw materials are sourced for their specific mineral content and handling characteristics. Kaolins are sourced from England, Florida, and Georgia. Feldspars from South Dakota and Canada.
