Michele Jaffarian currently resides in Portland, Maine as a Senior at Maine College of Art.

She will receive her BFA in Ceramics this coming May, 2018. Jaffarian’s functional pottery focuses on tactility, evidence of the hand, and nature inspired illustrations on high fire porcelain vessels.

Jaffarian’s pieces are truly one of a kind. She was born with only one functional hand and is constantly altering her studio practice to accommodate to her body, making it easier, yet still productive.

She is looking forward to having a home studio practice, where she can continue to make functional pottery and sculptural ceramics.
