After 17+ years designing accessories for mega brands, Erica Recto stepped away to pursue her own passion for making and creating. On a whim she took up ceramics and instantly became enamored and immersed in the process. Her collection of ceramics and apothecary, Amelia, is inspired by travel, her own personal ancestry, and the day-to-day Brooklyn bustle. She also often calls upon her Filipino heritage by paying tribute to ancient Filipino graphic motifs in some of her ceramic forms. Erica makes each piece by hand using the finest materials – organic, wildcrafted and sustainable – making them all truly one of a kind. Her pieces are as much a celebration of process as they are expressions of form and function.
