Megan Peden Pottery

 I come from a family culture of hospitality, where dinners take place around a dining room table fully set. It was not until I entered the world of ceramics that I began to have a real awareness of the objects on and around which these meals happened. When I first began making functional pottery I felt at home immediately with the vocabulary of function and found such fulfillment in participating in this community of artists who all talk about the things that I love.

I want to make work that can function in everyday use as a stage for human interaction and around which often overlooked daily rituals become meaningful.
