Meet the Maker
Ceramic Artist - Jeffrey Ryan May
Born and raised in the tranquil setting of Ojai, California, Jeffrey is a true native whose work embodies the conscious spirit of his hometown. His love for clay emerged in college, setting the stage for a passion-fueled journey into the craft. This path reached a pivotal point when he met Kali, fellow creative soul with an eye for design. Together, they co-founded Ritual Ceramics + Ritual Studios, a conscious endeavor that seamlessly blends the art of handmade ceramics with the ceremony of everyday living, inspiring others to fill their days with conscious ritual in place of mindless routines.
