Humble Artisan Pottery
ar•ti•san: mid 16th century: from French, from Italian artigiano, based on Latin artitus, past participle of artire ‘instruct in the arts,’ (1.) a person skilled in an applied art; a craftsperson.
Each piece is handcrafted and meticulously thought out to make each one as individual as we are. Fairware makes artisan pottery not production pottery, meaning no two pieces are the same. They are all given names, as they each hold a place in my heart. My goal is to make them just as functional as they are personal; to me, and hopefully to you.
I’m Sydnie, founder of Fairware Ceramics, though you’ll never see that name on any of my pots; unless you know what you’re looking for. Every one of my pots has a hand-carved insignia of a wheat shaft, my family symbol, rather than my name. It shows the craftsmanship of the pot leaving no credit to the craftsman, because for me, it’s not about the name. It’s the feeling that I leave with each piece that gets to find a new home. Pottery is a form of art that has allowed me to combine my many loves into one: three-dimensional, two-dimensional, texture, color, touch, architecture, etc. Teaching me great lessons like patience, optimism, freedom, accepting change, embracing failure, and more and more everyday. I hope you capture as much feeling seeing them as I put into making them.
