D:Ceramics pieces are hand-thrown, with artful simplicity. Our pottery is handmade, so each piece reflects its own unique qualities.
Craft is about attention: Behind every collection and individual form lies an intentional, meticulous process.
D:Ceramics is run by Denise Lopez, a graphic designer and pottery artist who works from her home studio in Los Feliz, CA.
A longtime graphic designer, Denise began working with ceramics to explore a fresh creative medium. She designs gracefully functional clay-ware that reflects a timeless aesthetic. With an eye for understated elegance, she hand-throws each one-of-a-kind piece by the natural light of an open-to-the-elements studio in Los Feliz—an unconventional, inviting environment that evokes the essence of her honest, labor-intensive process.
It is her belief that in concentrating on the finer details, encouraging a slower pace, and appreciating the importance of each step, the intention and care that goes into her work is what makes each piece personal and unique. Her work is inspired by Japanese ceramic art, mid-century pottery, and minimalist design.
