About Melissa Crotty

Millie Crotty is a Philadelphia-based artist who studied ceramics at Alfred University. Through the years Millie has worked in many different materials--metal, glass, paper and found objects--but her love of clay has always been persistent. For the last several years Millie has focused on clay to develop Miss Millie, a vintage-inspired porcelain line. The Miss Millie line consists of functional wares, sculptural ornaments, and jewelry. Hand-built and slip cast from original and vintage molds in her south Philadelphia studio, Millie's pieces juxtapose utility with sculpture and the playful with the macabre.
