Lovely ceramic artist Megan Burke began her passion project Tinyloud Creative Co. a little over a year ago. Ever since she can remember megan has been drawing and her skill inspired her to study printmaking in college. However, it wasn’t until she took a two-day ceramics class that she felt she had found the right outlet for her creative endeavors.
"Creating three dimension work is perfect for me because I can marry my love for drawing, patterning, and sculpting into a singular work of art" explains Megan who lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Evenings and weekends she runs her little ceramic studio where you can find her covered in clay as she spends her time creating and designing her lovely pieces. During the day she uses her fine arts & visual design background in her work as an associate ux designer. Despite her busy schedule, Megan likes to talk design and make art all day, every day. That's her passion.
The name Tinyloud was inspired by a poem she wrote using the cut-up technique and when it came to brand her company, these words came back to her. She hoped that her work and love for detail (tiny) would appeal & speak to people (loud)ly thus Tinyloud.
Yad Cheri was immediately attracted to Megan's interpretation of the hand and it was obvious that her lovely ceramic dishes should be part of our selection. We love her line drawings and bold contrasting colors that give texture to her creations, she always illustrated hands & eyes and those shapes naturally became some of the first imagery incorporated into her ceramic works.
When asked why she was attracted to these themes, Megan says "I am drawn to the intimate yet universal appeal each has and how they create expression and feeling in any context."
Megan's lovely hand shaped signature dishes decorated with words of wisdom such as hope, live fast or dazzle are part of yad cheri's unique selection and we are thrilled to present her work which will allow you to spread good vibes around you when you place these in your home.
Megan Burke is currently beginning to work on some larger pieces and a line of ceramic jewelry that we look forward to discovering.
