About Natalie Blake Studios
Visit our Fire Arts Gallery and Open Studios in Brattleboro, Vermont and see our studios in action.
Natalie Blake began her professional career in 1994, creating her unique line of carved vessels and hand-sculpted tiles in Southern Vermont. She graduated from Kenyon College with a degree in ceramics and soon after received the prestigious Thomas J. Watson Fellowship, which brought her to the Netherlands, Korea, Nepal, India and Indonesia to study ceramic forms. Her work quickly gained exposure through art shows like the Smithsonian Craft Show and the American Craft Exposition, and Natalie’s exploration of the ceramic arts has continued for over 25 years.
Natalie continues to expand her inventive line of vessels, with new designs, styles, colors, and shapes coming out of the studio every few years. With her Lead Studio Designer, Cynthia Parker-Houghton, she has continued to develop her line of sculptural wall art tile, with new motifs and textures joining the botanical and geometric designs in the studio portfolio.
We welcome custom projects and have worked closely with hundreds of homeowners and corporate designers to make unique pieces of art that are the perfect blend of inspiration, collaboration, and creative energy. To get your creative process started, visit the Custom Project page and see examples of recent backsplashes, murals, and public art installations.
