Born the daughter of a painter and an organic dairy farmer, Molly was raised to be creatively industrious. Using her imagination and love of drawing to make everything from her well known idiosyncratic ceramics to quirky pen-and-ink drawings. Molly’s craft is finely honed, her designs whimsically literal and pop-culturally on-point.
Working from her basement studio, Molly began her career as a studio potter in 2008. Her formal education in ceramics and drawing resulted in the development of her signature style. Making contemporary ceramics inspired by history, Molly’s career as a studio potter quickly garnered a loyal following. Molly’s designs have expanded beyond tableware to a wide range of lifestyle products and Molly is actively growing collections of home goods to bring her modern yet traditional designs to the contemporary home.
“When I think of ceramics, I think of Molly Hatch. She has been my favorite ceramicist since the beginning of Design*Sponge for a number of reasons. First, she combines hand-drawn elements with clay (Love). Second, she has a love of decorative arts history (something we all love). Third, she happens to be as incredibly cool, funny, and smart as I thought she would be.” -Grace Bonney, Design*Sponge Founder
“Ah, Molly Hatch. This lady makes me smile big. What gorgeous work she has produced. I remember the first time I spotted her work because I fell in love with her cups. Her work is forever evolving but her unique style is still carried throughout her collections so you can always tell they are authentically Molly.” -Holly Becker, Decor8 Founder
