CK_TC Ceramics is a local design studio that offers peculiarly shaped pottery, including signature pieces like patterned pots and vessels adorned with color-gradient squiggles. Owners and ceramicists Colin Klimesh and Taylor Carter merge digital methods with traditional tools, using state-of-the-art 3-D modeling programs while handcrafting clays and glazes in-house — a process Klimesh says creates unique and high-quality pieces that will stand the test of time. Clay from items that don’t meet quality standards is reclaimed and reused for future creations and all by-products are recycled. And the ceramics that make the grade become excellent and eclectic home décor. CK_TC Ceramics, cktcceramics.com.
