Perfect Imperfections Pottery creates functional pottery from locally sourced clay that is fired for three days in a wood kiln. Most of the coloration that is on the pieces comes from the atmosphere and build up of ash within the kiln.

Loved First has two artistic mediums, one is pottery pieces, the other is handcrafted genuine leather cuffs. Pottery ranges from mugs, plates and tiles for wall decor to custom made pieces with a specific focus on child hand and foot prints in different words or images. The leather cuffs are created in different widths with a variation of metal, rock, glass or pottery pendants. Loved First bracelets are durable and comfortable. They become even more comfortable over time as they form fit to each individual wrist.

My goal as an artist is to create functional ceramic work that people can connect with and enjoy. My work mainly focuses on connecting the viewer to functional ceramic work by incorporating different facial expressions. These include but are not limited to: Face mugs, pour-over face mugs, face planters, hanging face planters, face planter sets, yarn bowls with faces, espresso face mugs, travel face mugs (with reusable silicone lids), and face bowls. Each facial expression is different and some incorporate facial piercings. Some mugs and planters have 2 faces (one on each side) that have two opposing expressions. I also specialize in custom ceramic chess sets. I just completed an under-the-sea themed chess set that exchanges each piece into a corresponding creature. For example, the king is a shark, the queen is a dolphin, and the knight is a sea horse (since they are both horses). – Corissa Lynn
I began my personal exploration in clay over 25 years ago when my young son was taking a clay class. He ventured off into other creative avenues, but my love of mud continues to be a source of enjoyment and challenges. I experience an inherent joy and relaxation in taking a lump of clay, wedging it, throwing it on the wheel, adding texture and dimension and then waiting for the bisque piece to come out of the kiln. The last step, glazing, turns that initial lump of clay into a final piece of art. I create hand-thrown functional clay pieces.
Clay + Heat + Glaze = Pottery; But the missing piece that brings it to life is The Potter -Merle Slyhoff
Whether it is a mug, a bowl, a vase or a platter I work the clay to maintain a simplicity of design while considering the ergonomics of use. My design aesthetic is minimalist however a fascination with texture and surface design enables me to enhance the simplicity through carvings, texture work and piercings that allow the glazes to intensify the final work. Running a one-woman operation, I design and create my work at my Glenside, PA studio, always striving to create pieces that brings joy to the user.
