About Round Designs
Round Designs is the creative brand of Sarah Haze, a maker living in Troy, New York. The studio and shop is located in downtown Troy at 1915 5th Ave, just South of the First United Presbyterian Church.
Founded in 2016 during a time of great political and social conflict, Round Designs aims to bring moments of joy and whimsy to your life through colorful, handmade ceramics. The artworks are sometimes wearable, sometimes functional, sometimes sculptural, but always handmade in small batches, carefully crafted, and intended to make you smile.
