Chemistry Teacher to Potter

About 15 years ago, I was a high school chemistry teacher and participated in a project with an art teacher and the local craft museum. The project was to show the relationship between chemistry and ceramics. I worked with the resident artist (potter) from the museum to create lessons about the physics involved in throwing clay to the chemistry of glazes. The resident potter let me try out throwing on the wheel and I was hooked. That was over 10 years ago! I took lessons and learned from members of my pottery guild. I spent a week at the John C. Campbell Folk Art School in Brasstown, NC improving my hand building skills.

I have recently moved to Lyman, SC and eager to establish myself in the upstate art community. My work centers on wheel thrown and hand built functional pottery for the home and garden inspired by the shapes, colors and textures found in nature.
You can see samples of my work on my website and Instagram (@addison_pottery).

I have been a avid hobbyist of pottery for over 10 years. It all started with the annual question from my husband - "What do you want for Christmas?". I saw an advertisement in the local paper for pottery lessons and showed my husband. The following year, I got a pottery wheel and kiln! I have continued to take lessons and learn from members of my guild.
