About Trista Depp Chapman

I fell in love with clay when I was eight years old. I attended art school, was temporarily distracted by a few years in the restaurant business, a number of years in retail and a failed marriage. I then attended a craft school in Richmond, Va where my love for clay was re-ignited.

I love the texture, feel and physicality of working in clay with my hands. I enjoy making art that people can literally use to serve their meals and then put on the wall and make into a display to enjoy. Many of my collectors have also shared with me that my work makes them feel happy.

I produce a line of whimsical, functional, colorful, earthenware that I sell both at art fairs up and down the east coast. I also sell my work out of my studio shop. The work is both thrown and altered, hand-built, and extruded. The fanciful decoration is done with underglaze that I paint on and energize with sgraffito lines that reveal the clay body underneath the glazes. All work is dishwasher safe and food-safe.
