At Home With Portland Mama & Ceramicist Martina Thornhill

If you’ve seen the vibrant, inventive work of ceramicist Martina Thornhill (take a quick peek here, if not), it’ll come as little surprise that the woman behind the work is full of vibrant creativity, both in her work life, home life, and in the thoughtful way she thinks about mothering her 5-year-old son, Dodge. We were lucky enough to get to know the Portland-based talent (whose hand-crafted work is often sold-out in an instant) a little bit better when she let us come over to her eclectic and colorful, art- pet- and plant-filled home, and discuss everything from parenting with a collective mindset to running a small business during a pandemic. We suggest pouring yourself a nice cup of coffee or tea (bonus if it’s in a really pretty mug) and settle into Martina’s incredibly inspiring home and story. Enjoy!
