Sam Block, the artist behind Sam Dodie Studio, is just a girl who makes things and sometimes sells them because people seem to enjoy them. Physically, she’s based out of Seattle, WA, but her mind wanders somewhere off the coast of Italy.


Sam makes functional wheel-thrown pottery that doesn't take itself too seriously. She enjoys experimenting with the play between clean lines and organic patterns, and her closest friends (who may or may not be helping her write this) consider her style and technique as “always evolving” because she gets bored of doing the same thing over and over.


Here’s a list of some things that Sam draws inspiration from:

+ Henri Matisse

+ plants (both in and outside of her home)

+ the desert

+ mid century modern furniture



When she is not making things or working full time as a graphic designer, Sam enjoys spending her time grocery shopping, rearranging art in her home, and drinking in the park.
