Hi, I'm Hana! I create colorful ceramic jewelry and decor out of a spare bedroom in my Arkansas home. I'm a one-woman show, making each piece with my own two hands, from start to finish. Each piece I create is a reflection of my love for vibrant color palettes and playful patterns, which I combine to form fun, unique pieces for color enthusiasts and their homes.
The name Quiet Clementine came about after several months of brainstorming and researching. I wanted something playful and fun, but that also describes what I make. Quiet refers to the small nature of my pieces and Clementine refers to the vibrancy that I strive for through color and pattern. It is a perfect representation of my work and the feeling I wish to evoke in the lives and homes of the people who purchase my pieces.
Quiet Clementine began after somewhat of an “aha” moment. I previously made polymer clay products under different names, but never truly felt at home in those businesses. My dad (who is a potter) encouraged me to make some things for my shops and I always shrugged it off because I didn't feel that I had the skill or space to dedicate to ceramics. Once I finally gave in, I was hooked. It is with that encouragement from my dad and my newfound excitement for ceramics, that I decided to move forward with this new venture. I’m so excited about the future of Quiet Clementine and I can’t wait to see this little shop grow into all that I hope it to be.
I create ceramics full of color and pattern because those are the things that make me giddy with excitement and that I want to be surrounded by in my own life. When I see a beautiful color combination or playful pattern, my eyes light up, and even more so when I see those things on a functional or decorative piece of art.
Quiet Clementine ceramics are made with those goals in mind; I want them to excite you and make your eyes light up. I want you to interact with and enjoy them every day. Above all, my goal is to make fun things that are happy and vibrant and I hope they make your life just a little bit more colorful.
