Erica Recto Art

Millerton, NY

"Tactile and organic shapes in ceramic and fiber. Functional, decorative."
I am a multi-disciplinary artist whose works include but are not limited to ceramic and fiber sculpture, functional objects, experiences, and writing.

My practice is informed academically by 17 years of work in fashion design, illustration, and graphic design. It also draws intuitively from ancestral studies, spirituality, mysticism, functionality and most recently motherhood.

I was most recently the creator behind AMELIA - a brand selling ceramics, handmade incense, and apothecary items - carried in inspirational boutiques across several continents. I found initial success but ultimately opted to shutter the brand in late 2018 to focus on motherhood. It was an education in starting and scaling a home based business that I will be forever grateful for, however production pottery just didn’t seem a good fit for me anymore.

I returned to the studio in late 2019 in a more intimate capacity. Less wholesale, more exploration and creation. This change helped me forge a deeper understanding of my studio practice while also reducing my environmental impact since I am no longer producing and shipping large quantities of work internationally. I value sustainability and often use repurposed items within my work, as well local and renewable materials when possible.
