PRONOUNCED: [ Doran - Greek - EE - Uh ]
Deanna Dorangrichia earned a BA in studio art with a concentration in drawing. She now makes ceramics in small batches using stoneware and porcelain. All pieces are made by hand using both wheel-throwing and hand-building techniques. Rooted in the belief that more is not necessarily better, Deanna produces work that embraces simplicity and minimalism – a reminder to slow down and pause with intention.
The final glaze results often incorporate a glazed line – a nod to her background in drawing and a reference to the philosophical belief that drawing is the foundation of all art disciplines. For Deanna, the line represents both a starting point as well as a continuance; everything begins and remains in existence in one form or another.
Dorangrichia Ceramics creates carefully considered designs that should stand on their own, feel good in the hand, and function with purpose. All ceramic pieces are created for the incorporation into one's everyday, and, therefore, catalyze the continuance of the lines in the work.
The making of each ceramic piece is only the beginning of its significance and narrative; please use often to create your own memories and history.
