Inspired by playful modern design, organic forms & life under the sea.
RELM STUDIOS produces a variety of unique and modern ceramics. Ranging from functional everyday wares for dining to home furnishing and urban gardening. RELM STUDIOS is owned and operated by its founder Ariel Zimman. Established in 2013, it is run out of a studio space in SE Portland OR. Every piece is lovingly hand crafted and assembled, making each item truly one of a kind.
Ariel fell in love with clay in 3rd grade and has continued to work with the material ever since, incorporating techniques of hand building, slip casting and throwing on the pottery wheel into her creations. Her interests range from utilitarian design to life under the sea. Ariel graduated with a BFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston & Tufts University in 2009.
