ZZIEE Ceramics is the work of Elizabeth Eisenstein, an artist based out of Los Angeles. Coming from a fine arts background, she enjoys making work that straddles the divide between pottery and sculpture. As a result, she creates objects that are too functional for many art galleries, and perhaps too dysfunctional for traditional home-goods stores. She is equally inspired by the work of master Japanese potters, and that of first-graders. Consequently, a reverence for the medium, combined with an inquisitive and playful approach in the studio, is integral to her practice. But at the end of the day, she simply strives to make funny things out of mud that feel good to hold, look at, and use.
