Born of a deep friendship between two artists in Maine, Tanja Cesh (founder of MULXIPLY) and Kristen Camp (founder of Campfire Pottery) teamed up to create a limited edition collection of wearable art consisting of seven new pieces. 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 which features their full collection of handmade pottery, jewelry, and ethically-made apparel.
Each piece in this collection is designed by Tanja Cesh, and hand-forged by MULXIPLY’s team of metal artists in Nepal. Each of these designs is then completed with Kristen Camp’s ceramic Raku 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.
