Chrissy Ann Ceramics - Suite 302
Artwork for your home and for your everyday life.
Chrissy Feiteira is a full time ceramic artist working in a historic textile mill in New Bedford, Massachusetts. Growing up as the daughter
of Azorean immigrants, she had lots of exposure to the traditions of handmade which has significantly influenced her work and adult life.
“I come from a family of artists and makers. My parents and grandparents were creative types, artists and musicians. I grew up in a
home of craft projects, painting and drawing together while listening to records as a family was how we spent our time together. I learned to make sense of the world and to socialize with
others in the community through art and creating with my hands.”
Her art process is about returning to the handmade movement where objects are again made by people with their hands and their hearts, not the mass
production made by machines. Her art is about the connection between artist and community, about tradition. Her inspiration is to design objects that people will bring into their
homes to share with their families and cherish while incorporating them into their everyday lives.
Currently, Chrissy designs and hand makes pieces for her business line “Chrissy Ann Ceramics” A collection of tiles, dish ware, home accents
and special occasion gift ware that she sells at local farmers markets, juried artisan shows throughout the region, boutiques throughout the country, and online
International collections include Kanoria Centre for the Arts in Ahmedabad, India and KU Art Center in Beijing, China. She has also been recognized by The Gift Insider on CBS Madison News and Fox Detroit News.
