Michele Jaffarian currently resides in Southern Maine, working on beginning her home studio practice.

She received her BFA in Ceramics in May of 2018. Jaffarian’s functional pottery focuses on tactility, evidence of the hand, and nature inspired illustrations on high fire porcelain vessels.

Jaffarian’s pieces are truly one of a kind. She was born with only one functional hand and is constantly altering her studio practice to accommodate to her body, making it easier, yet still productive.

She is looking forward to developing herself and her work at her home studio, where she will continue to make functional pottery and sculptural ceramics.
