About

About

ZZIEE Ceramics is the work of Elizabeth Eisenstein, a sculptor and potter based in Joshua Tree, CA. Coming from a fine arts background, she enjoys making work that straddles the divide between pottery and sculpture. She is equally inspired by the work of master Japanese potters, and that of first-graders. Consequently, a reverence for the medium, combined with an inquisitive and playful approach in the studio, is integral to her practice. At the end of the day, she simply strives to make funny things out of mud that feel good to hold, look at, and use.

Hello friends! I’m working on a special ✨MUG SALE✨ for the holidays! If you want to be the first to know about it, sign up for my newsletter (link in bio, or visit #zzieeceramics.com)—I’ll be sending out info on it early next week! In other news, I went MIA for a while because I was in Mexico on my honeymoon—can’t really begin to describe how wonderful it was. Oaxaca City for Day(s) of the Dead, Puerto Escondido for hardcore beach time, and then Mexico City for literally everything else. I did feel like a fool for not knowing a lick of Spanish though—can anyone recommend a good podcast or audiobook series for learning Spanish??

Sorry for the radio silence—wedding is getting real!! On that note, just wanted to let y’all know my #Etsy and webshop are on hiatus until November 15, when I return from our honeymoon. In the meantime you can find a few peach mugs like this one at @mazamarartpottery in Pioneertown, amongst other things 😊

I am getting married at the end of next month!!!! So obviously I am making cups for all of our wedding guests! Because I am crazy! And I’m using 3 different clays—because I am extra crazy! 🤠

I have a dream of one day taking 10 vases to a bowling alley, lining them up at the end of a lane, and going for a strike 🎳

End of a big chapter for me! The past year and a half I worked as a production potter at @mazamarartpottery in Pioneertown. In addition to learning how to throw 50 mugs in a single day without breaking a sweat, I got to work with some amazing people and grow as a potter so much more than I ever thought possible! Getting the opportunity to work an apprentice-like job was something I always wanted to do, and I can’t thank them enough for welcoming me into their studio and imparting their years of knowledge to me. I am so excited to use what I’ve learned and apply it to my own work ☺️ If you’re in the area in the middle of October, be sure to check out their studio during the @hwy62arttours Open Studio Tours!

I haven’t had much to post about as of late since I’ve been side tracked by back pain. A common problem for potters, and I’m sure some of you can relate! I have a lot of trouble taking time off from being in my studio but I’m really trying to force myself to rest. It’s hard! I just want to get back to the wheel! I’m trying to get a lot of computer-related work done in the meantime, which is reminding me how much I hate spending the whole day at my desk staring at a screen 😒 Hopefully I’ll be able to get my hands dirty again real soon!

Ok I realize I’ve been posting like ALL mug pix these days, but it’s basically all I’ve been making!! Y’all love mugs! And I do too 😎 Here’s a nice pic of all the variations I currently make. Any new colors you’d like to see?
