Exploring ideas of home and belonging through the lens of functional ceramics, Naomi uses text in her decorative process to incorporate marks made by others in order to collaborate with the past to make objects for the future.




Thanks to the support of our Patron members, Craft Ontario has continued to deliver essential programs and services that support craft artist careers.
