Hello, My name is Samantha. I was searching through all of my images for a picture of me and finally found this one. I seem to be the only one that takes all of the pictures. My mom took this image of me cleaning up a garden area in our yard.
I was born in Tallahassee, Florida and moved to Blacksburg, Virginia before my first birthday. During my junior year I found clay and fell in love with the material and process. After attending one more year at Virginia Tech I transferred to Alfred University, New York. I graduated from Alfred with a BFA in ceramics in 1995. I moved to Seagrove, NC in 1997 and have established my home and pottery here. Clay is my main focus on and off the job, otherwise my day-to-day activities are gardening, books, watching a movie at night, and walking our dog Moka.
