Ethan Lillemoe believes colors distract you from seeing the form and details in a piece of pottery. That’s why the award-winning ceramic artist chooses to work in white.

The artist & background: Primarly self-taught, Lillemoe took his first pottery class at age 10 at the South Fulton Arts Center. He decided to forgo college or art training and teach himself, developing his own modern and minimalist style.

The studio/company: Norcross-based Leire Tid Studios was founded in 2005.

The company name: Means “clay time” in Norwegian. Lillemoe chose the name because his ancestry is Norwegian.

What’s popular: Small and mid-sized sculptural pieces ($95 to $495) are popular as wedding presents.

What’s new: Developing a form of interactive wall sculpture.

Where to buy: leiretidstudios.com and at the American Craft Council show (Booth 816) in Atlanta March 11-13 at the Cobb Galleria. For information, visit www.craftcouncil.org/atlanta.
