Brooke Knippa, aka AP Curiosities, a talented Bowdoinham, Maine-based craftswoman, takes inspiration from nature and science to create gorgeous ceramics. The items with little sculptures of animals encased are pure charm.
Creating wares lighthearted in nature and inspired by a Cabinet of Curiosities, AP Curiosities taps into a whimsical aesthetic with nature and science as the foundation. Utilizing everyday objects and materials, each piece is created with care and patience. Nature provides the palette and patterns. As snow melts high in the Rocky Mountains, a natural faceted pattern emerges. Pastel colors dance between the clouds and ocean, reflecting soft pinks, purples, and blues. These colors and patterns eventually emerge on cups, bowls, and earrings.Brooke Knippa
