Camille at the Wheel is a collection of handmade, wheel-thrown ceramics with a bent towards beautiful utility. Through my work, I aim to bring users joy and usefulness, in equal measure.

I carve and texture every pot by hand, making each piece one-of-a-kind. I choose not to measure patterns as she carves. Actively selecting each stroke keeps me engaged in the moment. The resulting details and textures of my pots gently demand a user’s attention, inviting their touch and elevating their daily rituals.

My work has been featured in West Elm, Starbucks, Architectural Digest, and more. Outside of my studio, I have taught workshops at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, and the Lewis Latimer House Museum. In 2023, I was commissioned alongside 17 other ceramicists to contribute work to Nekisha Durrett’s Queen City, a permanent public art installation in Arlington, VA. Most recently, I modeled my work for Artistic Tile’s “Bringing Art to Life” campaign. I practice pottery at a shared studio in New York City.
