A LITTLE ABOUT TCC
Tiny Cloud Ceramics is solely run by Akron native Mary Clark. They've dedicated their time to making one of a kind kitschy-cute functional wares. After graduating with a BFA in Ceramics at The University of Akrons' Myers School of Art, they've kept their artistic life going with regional craft shows and makers markets. They were named Cleveland Magazine's Best of Cleveland winner for "Best Coffee Mugs" in the 2016 and included in the Handcrafted Shopping Guide by the same publication in 2019. They make cups, vases, planters, and other functional wares that have a candy color scheme not seen often enough in ceramics. Their mugs feature doofy animals, harsh phrases, clouds, sparkles, and abstract shapes. These hyper-cute pieces mix kawaii influence and 50's-esque surface design in a unique way that is both fun and functional.
