Mollie is a ceramic artist and designer who takes a geological and anthropological approach to her work. Based in Los Angeles and working primarily out of the Western United States, she creates place-specific ceramic collections that reference the ancient primitive and future.

For over two decades, she has traveled the mountains, deserts, and fields of the West and harvests wild clay from her travels. She communicates her work through form, material, and photography.

She works with interior designers and fellow artists, and sells to private clients and select retailers. She is available for commissions and collaborations. Mollie also offers consultations for interior design and art direction. 

She graduated summa cum laude from UC Berkeley with two degrees in Studio Art and Interdisciplinary Studies, where her work explored entitlement, environment, and intervention.
