THINKER CERAMIC ARTS
WHERE SCIENCE AND ART CONVERGE
FROM ME TO YOU
This website is newly redesigned
(as of February 15, 2023),
and is thus still a work in progress
as I migrate products and data from the old site.
I am in production mode on a few handmade designs
that I've developed over the past few years.
I will be offering these bright spots
of artful home décor and tableware for purchase
- online and in select in-person art markets and craft fairs -
beginning in March and April 2023.
I am thrilled to now offer the latest in "faerie chic" tableware :)
These collections range from planters and mugs
evocative of Midcentury Modern brutalist designs
to whimsical and lighthearted "faerie chic"
charcuterie/amuse bouche/dinner wares,
and reflect the diverse inspiration and expression
informing my studio practice.
I will be producing at least a kiln load a week
of these new collections, so check back here
regularly for new inventory.
- EVEN BETTER -
- AND -
follow me on facebook and instagram
to be informed about shop updates.
I am a visionary, a thinker, an activist and advocate; an individual humbled by the complexity of human society, yet intent on experiencing and contributing to it meaningfully and wholeheartedly.
My name is Brianna Tarnower, and I am the owner of Thinker Ceramic Arts. During the pandemic I built a ceramic studio and office in my backyard to grow my heart, mind, and spirit during turbulent times, as well as to nurture the expansive growth of my business plans and nonprofit visions for the future. In 2022, I had the honor of sharing my building journey during the Portland Open Studios event with a multimedia immersive installation showcasing the build and the studio and office buildings and gardens themselves.
As I thoughtfully refine and develop as a person and an artist, my offerings to the world reflect the often perilous multigenerational journey to manifest peace and respite that is my birthright as a woman from a people repeatedly untethered from family, history, time, and place. One of my goals as an artist is to serve as an inspirational beacon and reminder of the world-transforming and alchemical potential energy that is released when we transform darkness into light.
