Bianca Pulitzer is a ceramic artist and designer of functional clay objects. Each object is hand-built, glazed and fired in her studio in Pasadena, California. She works primarily in porcelain and stoneware with high-fire, food-safe glazes. The forms are simple and elegant. Evidence of her hand is subtle but each piece has individual character.
Bianca's first years were spent in her bohemian parents farm house with no running water or power near Bend, Oregon. When she was two years old they moved to St. Louis, Missouri; then at age nine they moved to Marin County, California. After graduating from high school, she reluctantly attended college where she attained a bachelor's degree in modern literature but spent most of her time in the fine arts department. A lifelong interest in art and design lead her on a wandering path to work in landscape, interior design and architectural firms. She moved to Los Angeles in 2003 to study architecture but left school to work in a residential architectural firm in Venice, California. Learning about construction, led to remodeling her house, a hilltop California Bungalow built in 1922 in the historic neighborhood of Echo Park. Under vague threat from her husband, to do something that would make her happy again, Bianca returned to her childhood enthusiasm: ceramics.
