Monica Greco has been throwing pots for 20 years and her work consists primarily of wheel-thrown high fire functional stoneware, jewelry, and mosaics of hand built tiles. Many of her pieces are designed for the kitchen and entertaining including olive oil pourers, olive servers, sponge holders, beer steins, and sake sets.
"I strive to develop and combine glazes to produce rich textured finishes with enough unpredictability to make every firing a new and surprising occasion. To me unloading a glaze kiln is just like Christmas morning.
I hope you enjoy using my pieces as much as I enjoy designing and making them. To me ceramics is where art meets function. It is one thing to make something to serve a particular function but being able to create beautiful objects that are used on a daily basis is what fascinates me and keeps me motivated to continually evolve as a potter."
