Though she has only been producing ceramics for five years, Malinda Reich has already developed a following among designers and tastemakers. Perhaps this early success is a result of her head start as a textile designer, which exposed her to whole world of traditional crafts and motifs—a background which has carried over into her patterned ceramics. Also reflected in the elemental work of the Swedish-born, Bay Area artist are Nordic midcentury designs, as well as Japanese/Korean forms and techniques. All one of a kind, Malinda’s quietly complex pieces are wheel-thrown and carved by hand.
