Chie Fujii AKA @chiecoceramics is a ceramicist based in Los Angeles, California. She officially started working with clay about 5 years ago but she says its something that she has always wanted to learn. Her work consists of functional objects and sculptural forms and is often inspired by memories of her hometown in Japan. After Chie moved to the US, she realized that many of the little details she overlooked everyday were things she was subconsciously attached to. Many of these things found a way of manifesting in her work and give it layers of texture and sentiment. Another cool fact about Chie is that she works as a Jr. Clay Modeler in the Car Industry. Chie says having a job like this creates balance in her life because it demands the fundamentals of structure and regimented process and actually allows her to feel more free when she does ceramics.
