Blue Check and Swirl Mug
Molly Bernstein is a Philadelphia-based artist and owner of Vessel Garden, her line of coil-built, porcelain tableware. She’s originally from the coast of South Jersey and growing up her parents owned a kite shop -- influencing her feelings about color and pattern. She has studied ceramics in different capacities at The Kyoei-Gama Ceramics School in Tokoname, Japan, UArts in Philadelphia, PA & The Chautauqua Institution, where she gleaned how to see functional objects as sculpture.
Molly is currently completing a three year fellowship at Penland School of Craft in Western North Carolina, which allowed her to expand her studio practice beyond functional ceramics and into metal-smithing, printmaking and puppetry. She hopes to continue working in multiple realms while noticing common threads within them.
