Ceramic Tube Bead
These locally-made (right here in Philadelphia!) beads are created with scraps from MVP Studio's larger pieces. Once beads are made they are fired and glazed. Beads are one-of-a-kind and come in a variety of shapes and shades. Were unable to send specific beads/colors but rest assured they are all stunning and unique!
Beads measure roughly 1-2” tall with a 1” hole, which easily fits macrame rope up to 20mm.
Mackenzie Pikaart is a maker based in Philadelphia PA. Her hand-built, functional ceramic dinnerware and objects are made for everyday rituals /routines, adornment of home and body. In her studio she is able to test out layering techniques, glazes, and patterning. Her work is made in small batches, because of this she is able to focus on each slab of Nerikomi made by layering different clay bodies to create agateware. Every piece is a relative of each other, just like a large family, but no identical pairs are possible due to this layering process.
