Welcome to Cynical Ceramics Co., we specialize in creating contemporary handmade ceramics for functional use. Our mission is to merge beauty and functionality in everyday objects, and we're not afraid to challenge traditional ceramic design conventions to achieve that.

Our pieces are unique, modern, and infused with a touch of cynicism that sets us apart from the rest. We believe that our customers deserve functional pieces that are also visually striking and bring a bit of attitude to their daily routine.

Cynical Ceramics Co. was founded by Scott Pierce, who has been working with clay on and off for the past 20 years. Scott's passion for ceramics became more serious during the pandemic.  Following the pandemic, he decided to leave his 15-year corporate leadership career and pursue his art full-time.

Our commitment to sustainability is a core value that guides our production processes. We carefully source our materials to minimize waste and reduce our environmental impact, and our production processes are designed to be as eco-friendly as possible. We believe that by creating products that are sustainable and long-lasting, we can make a positive impact on the world through our work.

At Cynical Ceramics Co., we take pride in our handcrafted ceramics that are both durable and functional. Each piece is created with care and attention to detail, ensuring that every customer receives a one-of-a-kind product that reflects their unique personality. Thank you for choosing Cynical Ceramics Co. for your functional ceramic needs.
