Utility Objects

Based in Atlanta Georgia, Utility Objects is a black and female-owned studio, currently a one-woman operation by Aleisha Duchateau (Do-chat-toe).

Aleisha's unique style seamlessly blends organic textures and glazes to achieve a contemporary, handcrafted aesthetic. Each piece she meticulously creates is a reflection of the inherent beauty of raw clay, often adorned with matte rock-like finishes. Drawing inspiration from diverse sources, her creative journey is influenced by the organic handmade essence of Japanese wabi-sabi, the vibrant color palettes of Scandinavian pottery, and the splatterware techniques from Europe's 18th century.

Utility Objects gained significant recognition in 2019 through a pottery fundraiser for Color of Change, an organization dedicated to fighting racial injustice in America during the Black Lives Matter movement. Since then, Utility Objects has achieved widespread success, selling its work to high-end boutiques, galleries, design firms, and major brands like West Elm and Food52.

The brand has also received notable press coverage, with features in publications such as Dwell Magazine, The New Yorker, Architectural Digest, Ceramic Review Magazine, and Southern Living.
