Whitney Simpkins makes ceramic objects as Personal Best Ceramics. She combines traditional forms and techniques with modern glazes and designs to create playful versions of humble functional ware. Whitney began selling ceramics in 2016 as a way to part with all the extra cups and bowls that hadn't been given away to friends. Years later, Personal Best Ceramics evolved into a bit more than cups and bowls, and her ceramics have found their way to many, many new friends. She lives and works in Baltimore, Maryland.
