Moe Lewis-Wolf is the passionate artist behind Fire and Hand Bonsai Pots. For over 25 years, she has been handcrafting ceramic pieces after honing her skills at the Worcester Craft Center under esteemed instructor Ginnie Gillen.
In recent years, Moe discovered bonsai and joined the Kaikou School at New England Bonsai Gardens, finding inspiration in melding her love of nature and ceramics. Her one-of-a-kind bonsai pots reflect her flair for texture and fluid lines. Ranging from intimate Kusamono pots to expansive vessels for large specimens, each of Moe's pieces is thrown by hand and finished with Mason stains and glazes.
Her focus on showcasing the raw earthenware skin of the clay encapsulates her vision of highlighting the elemental connection between bonsai, pot, and the natural world. As an artist, Moe finds motivation in the organic shapes and flows of nature and water. Her nontraditional approach gives bonsai enthusiasts the chance to showcase their trees with her signature earthy style.
