The Object Enthusiast Ceramics

Handmade in Omaha, Nebraska

Emily Reinhardt feels happiest when she has clay under her nails and dust on her face. She strives to make objects that people want to use and interact with daily. We are honored to have been her first stockist back in 2011 when she was spreading her wings as a young designer and maker. Visit Emily's instagram @theobjectenthusiast and blog for gorgeous tableaus and striking images of her current work. 

"i believe in sentiments, fresh flowers, and the people that treasure them too. the object enthusiast is {my work} where i share life lessons and the vessels that fill the spaces in between. sharing stories is the way in which i share my life and my passions. it is through ceramics that these stories often find tangible form and come to life for me. it was my sophomore year of college when i met the man who would change my path and put that spark of love for ceramics in my life. Yoshi Ikeda had a tough love approach to teaching, and he saw something buried in me that was ready to surface when i took that first class. it is with his mentoring—and his personal wheel and kiln that were gifted to me when he retired—that i am able to share these tangible stories with you today. taking the leap into a career as a ceramic artist, i will always be a student at heart. learning from those past lessons, friendly interactions, and the world around me, i aim simply to put good work into the world. my hope is that the products of my passions and my stories can become part of your future fond memories." -Emily Reinhardt, owner, maker, designer, The Object Enthusiast
