Columbus-based designer Lalese Stamps has taken social media by storm with her wildly shaped mugs.

You might not live anywhere near Lalese Stamps’s studio, but the ceramicist makes you feel like you’re right there with her. In one Instagram post, she celebrates the moment she got her first kiln. In a TikTok video, she slings a lump of clay onto her wheel and morphs it effortlessly into a cylinder—all to a Beyoncé remix.

“My work is just an extension of who I am as a person,” Stamps says of her speckled stoneware mugs and her glaze-spattered plates and bowls. “I want people to feel good.”

Stamps recently launched a 100-day project that experimented with handle styles.
