On the Wheel / by Olivia Siegel

Last Friday I went to the studio of Asheville potter, Melissa Weiss. I fell in love with her black and white functional ceramics a few weeks ago when I saw them on Instagram and then again in person at West Asheville's Villagers on Haywood.

As part of an Instagram takeover for Villagers, I've embarked on a project to document the work that goes into some of my favorite local crafts. Here's a selection of Melissa working on the wheel.
