From her basement studio in Everett, WA Chavez takes inanimate clay and, imbibing it with a personality of its own, brings her pottery to life. Each piece, be it mug, teapot or mixing bowl, is crafted with affectionate attention to both form and function. Every piece has a unique silhouette and vivacious colors. But these elegant curves are not just for show, like a lover’s hand they are meant to be held.
Chavez’s sensitivity to the relationship between people and objects gives her work warm-hearted appeal that will make it your new favorite cup, bowl or teapot. These pieces implore to be a part of your life – like a beloved sweater or a favorite spot on the couch.
Each piece is an individual, alive with its own personality and unique appeal. One may be a classic, sultry beauty like Audrey Hepburn, while others have a coyer, flirtatious charm like Marilyn Monroe. Yet, they all share a fun loving attitude; they seem ready for anything from a sunny day on the beach to a cozy night by the fire. Whichever one chooses you, rest assured it was created with the care and love of an artist.
In fact, the red lotus name and logo originated from Buddhist symbolism. The red lotus, according to this tradition, stands for an untainted heart – one that is filled with passion, love and compassion before being tarnished by life. And that is an accurate symbol for the mood and spirit of Chavez’s work – pure, untarnished and full of genuine love and generosity.
This generosity extends beyond Chavez’s artwork and overflows into her everyday interactions. She regularly shares her talent and passion with students, often on a one-on-one basis, providing a relaxing break from reality to focus on creativity and self-expression.
Regardless of the manner in which one interacts with Chavez’s talent, it is sure to brighten one’s day and provide a much-needed moment of Zen. Because sexy curves, vibrant colors and wonderfully big mugs come standard with pottery from Stephanie Chavez.
