Crazy Green Studios

Asheville, NC

"Individual. Handmade. Design."
Lori Theriault is potter and owner of Crazy Green Studios in Asheville, NC. Lori has made a name for herself creating beautiful, custom service wares in collaboration with chefs and food professionals across the country. During pandemic shut downs, she was able to explore design work that had been on her mind for sometime, and her "Vincent Series" was born. Influenced completely by the painting style of Vincent Van Gogh, and in great part by his "Starry Night" masterpiece, Lori interprets and explores the movement of the sky in short, individual sgraffito and/or carving strokes to create works small and large. Because she still runs a full production studio making other work, her production in the Vincent Series is small batch and only available in her gallery in Asheville or on commission on this page.

More About This Creator

Q&A

How do your pieces come to life? Tell us one interesting thing about your creative process?

"My work can certainly be an attractive part of any decor, but it really comes to life when it's in use - filled with delicious foods, being passed across tables and shared with good friends and dear family. Early in the creative process, it's that final image of a table surrounded by people sharing food, love, and life that begins the inspiration of making each piece."

Q&A

What do you want people to do or feel when they encounter your creations?

"I want them to see the work is 'not the usual' piece of ceramic. I want them to want to touch it, pick it up. And if they are using the work, I want them to envision the food that the pieces will hold, and be inspired to create for it as I am inspired by what might go into each of my pieces."

Q&A

What funny moments, unexpected surprises, or obstacles have you encountered?

"It is a tricky thing to grow as an artist and entrepreneur, and both hold on to a design philosophy and keep open to growth in unexpected directions. While I love to work with chefs on designing pieces for their creations, one of the most gratifying and successful production pieces I now create is in fact an accessory. As they continue to grow in popularity and demand, I happily still love making them, and their success has allowed me to me employ other artists, and grow my business in direct response to their success in ways I would not have imagined."
