There are those who teach and those who make. We do neither (unless creating magazines count), but we do admire. A lot. And the work of AS Ceramics‘ Anne-Lise Schmidt is certainly something to delight in. A graduate of Vancouver’s Emily Carr University, Schmidt creates wheel-thrown, handmade ceramics out of her Calgary studio, with a particular focus on “function, visual appeal and simplicity.” We’ve loving her pinch-pot llamas and illustrated snake motifs.Follow her process on Instagram (@as.ceramics) and remember to tag your work with #WLDesignerSpotlight for a chance to be featured.
