My name is Ryanne, the artist behind Arty Lemons!
To be honest I would have never believed you if you told me a few years ago I would run a ceramics business.
It was around Christmas time 2020 and my country was in complete lockdown. I could not go to a physical store to buy Christmas presents. I remember finding myself looking for ways to make the gifts myself. I have always loved to paint and illustrate, so this should be fun I thought. I stumbled upon a video of a girl making her own mugs.
I thought this was the absolute coolest thing ever! Starting with just a bump of clay and using your imagination to make whatever you want! I did some research and ordered some materials.
On the second of February 2021 my clay and supplies arrived. This was the day I started making my own mugs! I fell in love with the slow process of hand-building using my imagination. Every mug, bowl or dish takes me around one month to finish, but every step of the process is very different, which makes the whole process interesting.
