All in a clay’s work
Whitney Panetta is an art teacher who isn’t afraid to get her hands dirty. She’s been teaching high school sculpture for the past five years, but when she’s not molding young hands, she’s molding her own line of ceramics.
For Whitney, the best part of making pottery is that each piece is unique. “I like them all to be different. Slightly different sizes, slightly different aspects. I like to see my hands on them.”
She describes her work as “shabby chic. It’s kind of messy, but at the same time it has a little refined part to it.” One thing is certain; all of her work is undeniably handcrafted.
After checking her ceramics out at Crafted Westside, we only have one thing on our minds: how good an after-dinner coffee would look in one of her mugs.
