Since growing up in the swamplands of southwest Florida, Sarah Ritz has always been happiest getting her hands dirty in the name of art. While studying photography and art history at the University of Florida, a well-timed dip into the world of clay helped her find her place in a big way. “I was having a really hard time fitting in, but within days, I was adopted by this group,” Sarah says of the close-knit crew she met in her first ceramics class. “They basically changed the course of my life. Without them, I wouldn’t have what I do today!”
That’s why, when Sarah launched her line of confetti-patterned goods in 2012, she named it Freundeskreis Goods, anchored in a German word that translates to “friend’s circle” that’s also a nod to the time she spent living in the country after graduation. From there, it was on to New York and, eventually, her current homebase in L.A. Sunny west coast vibes have also infiltrated her designs, like speckled bowls, collage-patterned tumblers, and amoeba-esque platters. As Sarah says, “My move really influenced my work. It’s now lighter and brighter. I’m always striving to make things that are exciting and visually thrilling.”
