Born of a deep friendship between two artists, Tanja Cesh (founder of MULXIPLY) and Kristen Camp (founder of Campfire Pottery) team up to create limited editions of jewelry and brass homegoods. Their collaboration is an ongoing effort to elevate art and artisans both locally and globally. Kristen and Tanja also share a shop in Portland, Maine called Ember which features their full collections of handmade pottery, jewelry, and ethically-made apparel.
Each piece in this collection is designed collaboratively then hand-forged by MULXIPLY’s team of metal artists in Nepal. Each of the jewelry designs are completed with Kristen’s ceramic pieces in her Westbrook Studio. The Japanese Raku process in which these ceramic pieces are fired creates a completely unique crackle glaze pattern on every piece. No two are alike nor can the outcome be controlled. The pattern that occurs is a result of its environment, and shows where the smoke and heat were present.
