Ceramist Ani Kasten isn’t just an artist (though she is – a great one), she’s also a social entrepreneur, a collaborator, a world changer, and a builder of people and communities.

Ani’s known for her strong and immediately recognizable style, which manages to be modern and primitive, elemental and refined. And we’re pleased to be hosting her again for a show in our LA studio, kicking off Ani Kasten: In the Rough on September 6 with an artist’s reception.

Originally from Massachusetts, Ani grew up in a creative, artistic family, with parents who encouraged her artistic and making tendencies. (Her father is prominent craft artist and hand weaver Sam Kasten.)
