In 2020, our new facility in the vibrant South Kensington neighborhood will propel us forward — a complete, comprehensive ceramics center expanding our role as art educators and securing our place as a leader in the field of ceramics. This is a defining moment, when our shared creativity becomes an even greater force for good. Together, we’ll make this vision a reality.

One person pedals, the other throws a pot! There's no electricity involved: Pottery Unplugged is a program that runs on a people-powered pottery bike, affectionately called BIKELANGELO, to bring art-making directly to the public. This is a dream come true for us. Now we can pedal around Philly neighborhoods and invite anyone to try the potter's wheel.how it works

My studio acts as a space for me to both escape and explore the world. By pulling on personal, social, and constructed symbols, I remove them from direct, cultured meaning. I weave them together to create a new fabric that is at once personal and universal. This serves as a critical look at the way knowledge is acculturated and understood.
I’m inspired by family heirlooms, idiosyncratic collections, and the landscape of my childhood home. I disrupt these close experiences by pairing them with outside cultural traditions that intrigue me, making each and every object a hybrid.
