Mandy Shoger is new to the valley! A longtime fan of the North Cascades, she has been dreaming about moving to the area for years and is finally moving her ceramics practice, Foxtail Pottery, to TwispWorks.
She originally earned a BFA in 2001 with a focus in oil painting, but was lured by the meditative qualities of clay work soon after graduating college. She has been growing her functional ceramics business in Seattle for several years, and enjoys working with clients near and far to create dinnerware that they can use every day. Her work is carried in several shops and galleries across the country and she can also be found online and monthly at Pike Place Market.
She enjoys straddling the design line between modern and rustic, using bold patterns inspired by architecture and textiles from around the world.
Mandy is excited that this new opportunity to work at Twispworks will give her more space to grow and evolve, and draw from the natural beauty of the people and landscapes found in the valley. She is considering offering classes and workspace for other potters as well. Be sure to stop by her studio in building number 9 and say hello!
