Ian Buchbinder is a Rhode Island based potter focused on creating unique functional ceramics that bring a smile to your face. Each piece is thrown on a potter's wheel and painted by hand. In avoiding molds and stencils the designs have room to breathe and evolve over time while staying consistent with the overall aesthetic. Presently, Ian's work depicts scenes of carefree, joyful astronauts drifting through space accompanied by a menagerie of animal companions. His work is food-safe, microwaveable, and dishwasher-safe.
