My name is Sage Cortez, the hands of Hand & Fire Ceramics. I am a designer, ceramist, and craftswoman focusing on perfecting qualities of hand within functional tableware. My work is intended to bring life to any table it is brought to--to be a refresher in a world of casted, symmetrical, and manufactured goods. Currently I am finishing up my BFA as a sculpture major in my beautiful hometown of Portland, Oregon. All works produced are small batch provisions, one of a kind, and 100% made by my two hands--loved and cared for until the very moment I send them out to you. It is important to me that all my materials are locally sourced, food safe, and well made to provide you with the best quality to my ability. I want my work to be affordable, attainable, and all around accessible to as many people as possible, so I work hard to engage all of my audience at all price points. Hand & Fire is my inspiration towards being creative every day; whether it be clay or flour, I always have my hands in something. My objects are product of the hand, made for your home. Please feel free to contact me with any questions, requests, or inquiries.
