ART MAKER TO KNOW

MAKER TO KNOW: Quiet Clementine

Processed with VSCOcam with s1 preset

Quiet Clementine is rad ceramics, jewellery and homeware shop based in Arkansas, USA. Created and run by designer/maker Hana Brewster, the tiny label has rapidly gained vast popularity and a bunch of exciting stockists, though that barely comes as a surprise to us. Each handmade piece utilises bright palettes with plenty of pastel tones in the mix and simple marks and patterns to communicate a sense of happiness and fun. After stalking Hana on Instagram for many months it seemed only right to share her creations with our community and to spread a little of that happiness around.

Part of a family of makers, pottery is seemingly in Hana’s blood, however, it takes a skilful eye and contemporary tastes to create the directional flavours that make Quiet Clementine so distinctive. Combining her own love for colour and mark-making and an inherited enthusiasm for working with materials such as polymer clay, Hana produces functional pieces that bridge the gap between craft, homeware and art. From dishes and necklaces to seriously covetable glazed ring holders, her designs grace wish lists and gift guides created by expert tastemakers from all over the world.

Hana describes all things Quiet Clementine as being created for colour enthusiasts and we love her dedication to producing joyful collections with others in mind. Her pieces are perfectly in-line with playful home-decor trends yet unique and instantly recognisable, especially if they’re the subject of one of her brilliant photographs. Cheer yourself up and have a browse of her Instagram feed. You won’t regret it. Now, we don’t usually plug creatives too hard but with the holidays fast approaching and tonnes of ceramic-loving buddies on everyone’s gifting lists, it’s well worth checking out the Quiet Clementine Etsy shop too. Y’know, just for ideas. We know quite a few people who are going to be very happy come Christmas morning.
