Orna Eliyahu-Oron began her career as an archaeologist and art historian, but she has found her passion in clay. After moving from Israel to Seattle she founded Orna's Pottery in 2005. She sells her hand-made ceramic art at the historic Pike Place Market in downtown Seattle. Her work is influenced by the rich natural environment of the Pacific Northwest, and by indigenous pottery-making traditions from around the world. Orna strives to make high-quality pottery, combining functionality and aesthetics.
