Eugenia Frith Meltzer is a clay artist brought up in a household of two significant artists: Donald and Barbara Frith. Eugenia's work constantly challenges the rules of making clay objects functional. She seeks out the narrative to turn each piece, be it a simple cup or teapot, into something more, art with a twist. "It is very important that if it is functional piece, that it stays functional. The rest is up to me!"

Atmospheric Firing: Eugenia Frith Meltzer loves all types of atmospheric firing. She has wood-fired, salt-fired, soda-fired, and combinations of all, in the Midwest and along the East Coast. "I like the uncertainty, the element of risk that each firing presents. Great pieces come at the cost of many lost. It teaches me to be humble."

Humor is very important element and often expressed as a play on words in her titles. Eugenia says she has never lacked for imagination. Her figurative teapots are often inspired by her friends and colleagues. She invites you to look through her photo gallery which displays both past and present important work.
