Every piece you see is an original, created through freehand sculpture and illustration. There there will never be another one like yours!
We've worked with 50 different porcelain and stoneware clay bodies, and over a hundred glazes in complex combinations.
To create each piece, we undertake fifteen to twenty intense detailed steps, from glazing with micro-brushes to vitrifying at volcanic temperatures. Each one is a unique heirloom collectors' item. It can take weeks to bring a single piece to life!
Our names are Ryan and Rowan. We founded Fourth Branch Studios in 2014 and by 2017 we devoted our lives to it fully. We have two little dogs, a tiny calico cat, and a sweet little snake. (They have their own instagram @odipodipie!) We are both natives of the mystical Appalachian mountains where we live.
