I’m Tanya (she/her) and I work with my hands. I create nice ceramic things to hold, and am also invested in helping folks feel held. I guess I work with my heart too. It’s all connected anyway. I’m still figuring out how to talk about the spaces I’m exploring, the work I’m doing, and the way it all overlaps.
While originally from upstate New York, I have spent the last decade in Austin, TX. In addition to making ceramics, I also offer compassionate companionship as a full spectrum doula. My work and play are driven by a curiosity about what makes us feel held, and the things that we hold close. Exploring connection and engagement with ourselves and others. My ceramics are a celebratory investigation of the creative process, using color and personal iconography.
