handmade in pgh, pa – slowly but surely


My name is Chelsea and I am the artist and owner of Bombabird Ceramics. Bombabird {officially} started in June of 2017 when I quit my full-time job as a designer to head down the exciting but ever exhausting path of owning a small business.

I have been making work on and off for the better part of 15 years and I feel very fortunate to wake up each day and call this work. With your support, I have been able to make thousands of pieces and share them with people all over the country. Thank you for making what once seemed like a vague dream a reality.


I focus on functional stoneware that is wheel thrown, fired in an electric kiln, and finished in a custom glaze. You will find that my love for texture, a neutral color palette and form is reflected in each piece I make. All of which is meant to be used and loved by you in your day-to-day routines for many years to come.

If you have any questions for me please email me at chelsea@bombabird.com or use the contact form here.

If you are interested in carrying my work in your shop, please email chelsea@bombabird.com for current line sheets and details about placing wholesale orders. My capacity to take on wholesale work is limited so whether or not I am accepting new wholesale orders depends on the time of year/my general prior commitments.




Each year, I do events that give you the opportunity to purchase work in-person. Most events are local to the Pittsburgh area but not always. I keep an up-to-date list of upcoming events here (events page), please reference it at anytime if you are looking to shop in-person.
