angela venarchik is a ceramic artist living on lake michigan in chicago. her work is minimal and neat, placing an emphasis on form and function rather than image or decoration. mainly inspired by the landscape of the prairie state and the great lakes, the wide-open spaces of the plains are expressed through clean and minimal design. she works in a color palette that reflects golden native grasses, stormy summer skies, snow-covered urban landscapes and the saturated blues of lake michigan. each piece carries a deep, clear sense of place. angela's work is a celebration of design, craftsmanship & midwestern life.
we spent two days with angela, documenting her processes and bringing those back to the places in which the work was inspired.
