Northwest Ceramics was founded in 2020. Daughter, Liz O’Brien began finding herself through ceramics in college and finished with her BS in Studio Art with an emphasis in Ceramics in 2015. Liz introduced ceramics to Father, Jeff, and he began to fall in love with the medium as quickly as Liz did. Since 2014, Liz and Jeff have been teaching ceramic classes to children and adults. While teaching, they create their own pottery. Liz is inspired by modern forms and memories from her travels. Jeff draws inspirations from Japanese pottery and is a firm believer of form follows function.
And yes, they love teaching together and no, they don’t get sick of each other.
