Women who have diamonds, it can’t touch the joy and excitement of opening a kiln.

about lindsey schneider

I live and make my functional ceramics in Red Hook, Brooklyn, among an industrial landscape littered with scraps of street art, big roll-tap gates on boxy warehouses, and uneven cobblestones. This industrial ecology inspires my mark-making and surface detail, which nods to the rough, sharp edges that dot the squared off city blocks and buildings with simple forms. I am drawn to multiples and repetition, particularly when objects slightly diverge from the set through an intriguingly unstraight line or misplaced fingerprint.

Outside of my ceramic life, I create video and audio documentaries, and the process of creating time-based media constantly informs my ceramic practice. In the meditative repletion of clay through etching, I can feel myself scratching off seconds in time that become forever marked.

about the pottery

Every piece starts as a ball of stoneware clay, whether it's a dark burgundy clay body or my favorite, a light brown speckled clay.

All glazes are food-, microwave-, and dishwasher-safe. Every piece can be put in an oven, but please do so when the oven is cool to prevent cracking. Unfortunately, my pieces are not safe for stovetop use.

There is a lot of unpredictability in the process of making pottery and always a surprise when you unload a kiln. I love this about the process and how it imprints on each item a little reminder that it's handmade. I hope you appreciate that, too.
