Functional Objects

Design & Multiples

Functional objects created with the slip casting method that uses a plaster mold to cast ceramic objects. Mold-making is a challenging and rewarding technique that keeps focuses on designing negative space that creates a (positive) object

Handmade Neti Pots

Most neti pots are ugly and plastic. I want to change that.

Adopting a neti pot into my regular cleansing routine changed my nasal life as a former smoker and allergy sufferer. I hope it will change the nasal health of others, too!


B. Swell Ceramics is a small business focused on good design, wellness, and cleansing with a touch of humor. The neti pot is the signature object. 


Creating a functional ceramic object with purpose has been a challenge to building my craftsmanship and skills. Four prototypes later, this unique sculptural form is ready to bring you relief while looking beautiful in your bathroom!
