Growing up Houston based ceramicist Wyatt Little used to watch a lot of ‘Saved By The Bell’. “I remember carrying around those brick phones, like the kind Zack had on the show,” they were bulky and huge–not exactly the sleekest technology. The combination of these nostalgic items, and learning how to cast led Little to pursue ceramic art. Little’s designs begin with a memory or a treasured object. The results are decidedly quirky, whimsical objects that can be scattered throughout an apartment as standalone bits of décor, or, like his phone vases, used as catchalls for knickknacks or treasured flora. “My designs are my way of immortalizing the things I’ve always cared about,” Little says.
