ida thistle is based in oakland, california. all of ida's pieces are hand-built without machinery, including a potter's wheel.

much like humans, ida's dishes are not perfectly balanced, symmetrical, or completely smooth. their use of line etchings and image transfers further highlight the beauty in imperfections and the magic within the every day world around us. 

ida's work is heavily informed by various types of geography, connection, and a fiercely tender heart. 

they gladly welcome commissions.
