“The value of creativity” is a new series that explores how goods and services in the creative economy are valued by consumers and makers alike. See the previous installment here.

The plates, platters, bowls, and mugs that Amrita Lash throws embrace an elemental quality—imperfect edges and runny colors reflect an earnest and intimate purposefulness—yet, at the same time, transcend it.

Her blue, red, purple, and green glazes, all made from scratch, become complex abstract paintings on the surfaces of each unique clay body, revealing a bit about the artist herself.
