Ode is the creation of Melissa Statham a ceramicist and artist who loves the texture and softness of natural materials like cloth, leather and wood.
Her first product the artisan apron, like many of her designs, came from a need for something like it in her arts practice, or travels.
Melissa loves working with artists and artisans and has a strong philosophy about making quality things that last, and creating a sustainable living for those who still make things by hand.
