What Is Titania Ceramics?
Titania Ceramics was founded in 2010 and since the first day in business I, Thurston Baker, have created top quality Mid- fired(Cone 6, 2199ºF) contemporary stoneware pieces, functional and vibrant. I have always loved science and science fiction and wanted the name to reflect that so I chose the name of a moon orbiting Uranus.
Conveniently located in Northeast Lincoln Nebraska, U.S., the studio is always open to visit. Customer service excellence, a sort of perfectionism, and contemporary look is what TC is all about. Everything created is electric fired to cone 5-6, and safe with the dishwasher, microwave, and oven. I show at the Haymarket Farmer's Market in Lincoln, and numerous other shows in surrounding states. As the lone creator I do my best with keeping prices affordable and pieces top quality.

Get To Know Me
Artist and Founder
Throughout high school 1986-1989, I spent many hours in the Art Room. My Junior and Senior year were the most intense. I made mostly bowls and vases until I went off to my first college, CU in Boulder.
I took one class and did quite well; it was first-year pottery. After that, I decided reluctantly to pursue business classes for I thought that is what was expected of me. I did not do so well and moved back to Minnesota.
When I was at MCC in Minneapolis, I once again took another class and some drawing classes and minored in Art in 1993.
Since then I have not pursued my ceramics talent until Spring 2010 and was given the blessing of building a studio in my backyard. It lied dormant for the most part until the winter ended and at the end of January I was laid off from my job.
This is it! I have been creating many items in the studio since then, 95% wheel thrown forms and the rest slab. My styles are very Danish, Bauhaus, Atomic in form and decoration. Hope you enjoy and thank you!!
