Elaine Palmer Ceramics

I am an artist working in Minneapolis, Minnesota. In 2011, I graduated from the University of Minnesota with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree.


I create functional ceramic forms that are influenced by vessels from many traditions. My work often draws from historical English and Japanese pottery. It becomes an amalgamation of art history and my own artistic expression. The wares I create are influenced by Japanese Zen traditions that focus on mindful eating. I believe that by focusing on a meditative way of eating, we can gain a deeper appreciation for the food we eat and how it nourishes our bodies.
