Quirky and Functional "Pieces De Resistance" by Britt Appleton

Britt Appleton is a potter from Portland, Oregon. She makes quirky and functional pieces including mugs, bowls, vases, and planters, and decorates them with hand-painted animal motifs, female figures, faces and abstract designs.

She started the brand Pieces De Resistance in 2016 as a protest against the Trump Administration. But instead of resisting injustice by going through the negative emotions, she turned it into something positive and started making what makes her happy - pottery. She donates 10% of the profits from the sale of her pieces to different organizations each month such as ACLU - The American Civil Liberties Union.

The wheel-thrown pieces are made with laguna speckled buff clay which gives her pottery such rich texture and glazes that range from bright to pastel underglaze colors. Her one-of-a-kind pieces are available through her web store. To view what is she working on currently, visit her on Instagram.
