From 2005 to 2015 I ran Alyssa Ettinger Design Studio, a niche tabletop ceramics business. I garnered extensive editorial placement in publications including The New York Times, Gourmet, Food & Wine, Domino, and Real Simple. My original designs inspired product lines at retailers such as Crate and Barrel, Anthropologie and Target.  Additionally, I served as a juror for the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards.
