Saila Milja-Smyly

Mt. Pleasant, SC

Saila’s ceramic designs compass jewelry, tableware, home & garden accessories, and sculptural design pieces. She uses glazes with a great range of surface appearance, but avoids formal decorative elements, to create ceramics that appear to have been grown by nature. ¬†Using a specific stoneware clay blend, she brushes glazes on before the are completely dry, and fires them in an electric kiln. ¬†This process results in brilliant glazes that do not absorb water, allowing the pieces to be used outdoors.
