"I strive to make functional, comfortable pots, crafting an interactive artwork I hope becomes an intimate part of your daily ritual. The juxtaposition between order and chaos are the driving forces behind the design of my work. I am inspired by people seeking spontaneity within structured systems and the longing for moments of exhilaration within a day of monotony." - Samantha Hostert, Arlington Heights IL
