ABOUT

 Photograph by  Jessie Ditmar     Object & Totem  is a handmade ceramic studio founded and operated by Julianne Ahn, a B.F.A. graduate from The Textile Department at The Rhode Island School of Design and an M.F.A. in Fiber & Material Studies from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago.  Inspired by the nuances of meditation formed between geometry and the raw mechanics of matter, each piece is hand built or thrown to maintain a tension of memory and craft.  The studio initially began as an experimental tangent from working with fiber based mediums and slowly evolved into a committed practice towards clay.  Between hand building and wheel throwing, selecte tableware, vases and experimental art objects are drawn from both a means of control and discovery.    Formerly based in Philadelphia and Berlin, the studio is currently located in the Gowanus neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York.
