Paper & Clay Ceramics

I happened upon the Paper & Clay studio in Memphis by chance back in June, while we were driving around aimlessly early one morning. Since I only had a half day to spare there, I frantically called and emailed Brit McDaniel (the owner), hoping to stop in and shoot her space if she would be around. Brit was super sweet and welcomed us in, and even let me shoot her in action. I really admire what she's doing and was so happy to find this little space. Turns out my friend Kira (who has styled more than a handful of my shoots for me – including some of the ones on this blog) totally knew of her work already and had ordered things from her before. Hello, small world.

Brit makes beautiful, simple and modern pieces that are inspired by Scandinavian designs, plus she makes all of her glazes from scratch. You can find a selection of her work for purchase here.
