About the Artist
Lauren Rider, of Rider Ceramics, creates beautiful ceramic wares and jewelry out of her home studio in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Each piece is wheel-thrown using a white porcelain clay, then hand painted with a black underglaze in a striped or lace pattern, and dipped with a colored coating of glaze. The piece is then finished with a clear gloss glaze, which has a natural crackle effect called "crazing." They are food safe, dishwasher, and microwave safe.
