Hello there! I am Ed, a professional modern ceramic artist and author at Artabys.com, a website dedicated to promoting visual arts education and awareness. My passion lies in creating unique ceramic wall art that breaks away from the traditional pottery made on a potters wheel.
I am a distinguished ceramic artist, and the creative force behind Artabys.com, a platform promoting visual arts education and awareness.
With a robust foundation in traditional pottery techniques, my real passion emerges in the realm of modern ceramic wall art. My creations, each a unique testament to craft and creativity, diverge from the well-trodden path of wheel-thrown pottery. Handbuilding each piece with meticulous attention to detail, I ensure that every artwork embodies originality and exudes the painstaking craftsmanship inherent in handmade art.
