DARK+STORMY is a collection of work by Caylan Fisher-De Lisi. Every piece is made entirely by hand in Los Angeles, California.
DARK+STORMY walks the line between a super clean minimalist aesthetic and the inherently rustic tradition of working with clay, and always with a strong focus on purpose and beauty.
Due to the handmade process of pottery, each piece, including those in a series, are truly one-of-a-kind. When making sets I strive for consistency, but you can never truly replicate a piece exactly. I think this is what makes a collection really special. Pieces that show the human hand and heart, which are curated into a personal collection are much more intriguing and beautiful, in my opinion, than a perfect set made somewhere in a factory.
Nearly all of my pieces are functional, but that function is entirely up to you. Some pieces can serve several purposes. For instance, I have made bowls that can double as planters and cups that moonlight as vases. I encourage anyone who owns a piece I've made to put it to use. These pots are made to be picked up and held, to be warm to the touch with your morning tea, to take part in a big dinner with loved ones.
All available pieces can be purchased by clicking the SHOP tab above. Secondly, you can take a look to see what I've got stocked in the DARK+STORMY ETSY SHOP, and lastly, check out my SHOWS+MARKETS page for events in the near future. If you cannot find a listing, have questions, or if you'd like to see more pictures of a piece before purchasing, please feel free to reach out via Etsy, Instagram, Facebook or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All of my pieces are made from non-toxic, food safe materials. I would recommend hand washing as things can be knocked around inside the dishwasher.
