Gallia Street Studio is an independently owned ceramic studio in a small town on the banks of the Ohio River. Each piece is hand made and unique. There is a variety of products made from the wheel and hand built methods. All are food safe, as well as dishwasher and microwave safe *unless specifically noted.
"I can't remember when I wasn't drawn to clay. I would dig up clay off of the beach near my grandmother's house near the Gulf Coast of Mississippi. It was very sticky clay, the forms I made would dry out in the sun, and most often crack."
I enjoy making useful objects- a cup you can hold and sip from, or a plate or bowl to eat the meal you just cooked. I feel connected to the people who use my work. The idea of connection- as remote as it is- gave me a lot of warmth during those quarantine days.
I hold a BFA from Newcomb College of Tulane University in New Orleans where I was born and raised. After I discovered the wonderful world of Museums, I earned a MASA (Masters in Museum Studies) from The Southern University of New Orleans.
