About Ursula Basinger Ceramics

I am a ceramic artist based in Tucson, Arizona. What started as a casual hobby in 2015 quickly grew into a career and a purpose for me. I have been making ceramics full-time since 2019 and am still a company of one, working out of rented room in an old adobe.

I consider my work a collaboration with the clay. The Swish series of mugs and functional wares is created by marbling two types of clay together on the wheel. While I have some control over the final result, each piece is a result of the happenstance of the moment, and is therefore entirely one of a kind. The natural material and process shine in the the objects I create.
