After relocating from New York in the fall of 2015 to home bases in Northern Kentucky and Atlanta, Georgia, Pelle immersed herself in creating functional pottery.  This work is a return to Pelle's creative roots in functional ceramics and reflects her ongoing interest in the Utopian Idealism of the Arts and Crafts movement. Making functional pottery affords Pelle the satisfaction of un-alienated labor and rewarding objects of tangible functionality.
