fresh & fruity

July 16, 2015


Atlanta native Kira Yancey-Willis creates ceramic wall art that feels fresh and inviting.

The company: Yancey-Willis Ceramics was founded in 2004 in Atlanta.

The artist: She began her work with clay as an undergraduate psychology student at Georgia State University in Atlanta. She went on to earn a master’s degree in public administration and continued working in the non-profit sector. In 2004, Yancey-Willis decided to make the transition from hobbyist to professional artist — and set up a full studio in her home.

The main goods: Decorative ceramics ($300 to $1,400) for the wall. Most of the playful pieces are framed in shadow boxes. Each piece is handmade, and no two are alike.

What’s popular: Cottages and trees ($400 to $1,200).

Other favorites: Fruit pieces ($275 to $350) in zesty citrus colors.

Where to buy: See her work at and the Atlanta Arts Festival Oct 24-25 in Piedmont Park.
