"I learned my craft in Washington, DC and in Florence, Italy. I created RachaelPots in 2013 to sell my ceramics at craft fairs in New York City. Since 2013, RachaelPots has grown and evolved into wedding registries and wholesale markets. For a piece to just look functional is not enough. I hope the success I have found as a potter has come from my objects being beautifully, functionally enjoyable, where the visual presence and physical feel of my objects are in harmony."
