I'm Meghan, the person behind Grounded Ceramics. I create functional ceramics for the home. Each piece is hand-built or wheel-thrown using porcelain or stoneware clay, then glazed and fired in an electric kiln. My studio, where every part of the process takes place, is located in the basement of our Chicago home. It's a tiny space that allows me to only make so many pieces at one time.

The name grounded ceramics is relevant to numerous aspects of my clay practice. From the clay being sourced from the ground to the serene balance found at the center of the potters wheel, feeling grounded remains central to my practice. I hope to translate these ideas into my pieces by providing an opportunity for pause while bringing a dose of beauty, peace and permanence into your home.

All of my pieces, including the childrens' tableware, are intended to be used and loved. Almost all pieces are dishwasher-and microwave-safe (although hand-wash is recommended) and will hopefully last forever.
