Episode 16: Mixed within my Mixedness


This week, we chatted with Kelsey Cheng, a potter based in Chicago. She talks with us about running a woman-owned business and managing her side hustle and day job. She takes us through how her craft has evolved, and how things like community and social media have influenced her process and sparked her inspiration for creating different types of ceramics. She also discusses her perspective on her mixed identity, the ways in which her relationships have influenced her perspective over time, and learning to address the feeling of being "othered on either side." On Hella Asian, Kelsey gives us a crash course in bed feng shui.

You can find Kelsey on Twitter and Instagram, and purchase her ceramics at Kelsey Cheng Ceramics on Etsy!
