Tandem Ceramics-Florence, MA
Husband and wife team, Justine Barrett and Grant Figura, create beautiful pieces of art for the home. Our collaboration with this creative duo began a while ago when we met them at an arts festival. Justine has been working with clay since high school + college, but more seriously as a potter since 2011. She has a BFA in Ceramics and Grant, a BFA in Printmaking + Photography. Grant discovered the love of clay because of his collaboration with Justine, which began almost 4 years ago.
The name, Tandem Ceramics, stems from the concept of working together side by side, but specifically the idea of combining imagery and ceramics. They have been asked many times and the answer is still "No, we do not ride a tandem bicycle!" :) They have been working together for years both in business and even before that at different jobs.
