Amber E Lea
Amber is a ceramic artist turned jewelry maker. Truth be told, Amber E Lea Designs evolved through a series of fortuitous happenstances. Amber worked with clay since she was a kid and hasn’t been able to deny her fascination with its properties. After studying ceramics and arts in college, Amber took a job at a local jewelry making company. Now, years later, she’s a jewelry designer and has started a company specializing in ceramics.
Amber began making jewelry for herself to fill the void of simple yet interesting wearables in the world. At first, Amber was drawn only to the timelessness and versatility of the color white. However, it wasn’t long, until she began creating all kinds of colored porcelains, experimenting with metals and hand painting 22k gold and silver lusters on to the surfaces. These miniature porcelain sculptures have become her passion. For Amber, bringing art into everyday lives is a beautiful and necessary thing.
Amber offered us a little peak into her studio and workspace. We love all the hanging inspiration, and the raw vessels waiting to be fired up in the kiln.
