Meet Our Makers: Polli Pots

Meet Our Makers: Polli Pots

Eeli creates with unique wheel thrown and hand-built ceramics in small series. All bowls, mugs and cups have a unique pattern that Eeli paints with glazes on every piece separately. All ceramics are created in Denmark, Malling in her professional pottery studio and can be conceptualized like small pieces of art. She has a creative mind, so each ceramic piece varies in size and decoration individually. Minimalist, rustic, still usable pieces. Nature inspired and organic :). Ceramics are made from high-fired stoneware and are dish-washer, microwave safe. All the glazes I use are lead-free to. ‘I like to describe my design style as minimalist, rustic and functional. Inspired by nature and organic in shape. My work as seen in Sundance Catalog 2023, Frederic Magazine, in Schumacher Nashville showroom, in Country Homes & Interiors Magazine, in Juliet Contemporary Art Magazine.

How would you characterize your design style? 
‘I like to describe my design style as minimalist, rustic and functional. Inspired by nature and organic in shape. I have lots of ceramics and pottery from a variety of artists, some very rare and hard to find. I place the pottery like small art objects in my living room, book shelves, and bathrooms. These handmade pieces tell a story and my friends who visit are always asking to find and hear about my newest piece. I live in new minimalist house with white walls and these ceramics give my home a rustic, earth-colored aesthetic’.
