Faculty & Staff
Ned's work is influenced by 20th century English and Japanese pottery. He believes there is beauty in function and his pots are made to be used. He enjoys glaze chemistry and building out the studio space. Outside of pottery Ned enjoys chess, woodworking, bonsai, Starcraft and rock climbing. He lives in Arlington with his partner Alex, dog Lola, and son Quinn.
Ariane joined Indigo Fire as a staff member in Jan, 2020. Her role here has quickly grown and we are now proud to have her as the Belmont Studio Manager. On top of being friendly, helpful and smart, Ariane has a strong background in ceramics. She has a BA from Bennington College where she concentrated in ceramics. Her practice focuses on undulation, line drawn surface design, and odd earrings. She is on the hunt for the perfect electric green.
Peter is the studio manager at our Watertown location. After Peter graduated from Gordon College majoring in Communication Arts, he took a beginner wheel throwing class and knew right away that pottery was what he wanted to do for the long haul. Peter enjoys wheel throwing, and experimenting with hand building. When he's not at the studio Peter plays kick ball, walks on the beach and volunteers with Beverly Main Streets, the city he lived in for 4 years during and after college.
Jared is our glaze technician and primary Watertown weekend staff. They graduated from Massachusetts College of Art and Design with a BFA in Ceramics. Their pottery is made with functionality and comfort at the forefront, while also being a vehicle to showcase queer imagery and thematics in everyday space. When not working at Indigo, he's pinching pots in his backyard shed studio or caring for his myriad of pets, all beloved.
Jessie is our studio tech at both Belmont and Watertown. Despite majoring in Business at UNH, she’s always been drawn to art, such as drawing, painting and woodworking. After taking a wheel throwing class in summer 2020, she was hooked. She enjoys the versatility and functionality of clay and looks forward to experimenting with new forms and glazes.
Lola is a happy go lucky pup with a wonky smile - you'll find her wherever Ned is!
