Throwing clay has been a passion of Alyssa Harford’s for nearly 16 years. During the time she attended Monroe County Community College, Alyssa was given the opportunity to purchase all of the elements of a ceramics studio for a very reduced rate. As a ceramic artist, her inspirations come from the curiosity of others. She strives to create unique colors and color combinations through an excessive amount of test glazing to find new and striking aesthetically appealing pottery.
Alyssa Harford creates wheel-thrown pottery with homemade glazes fired to mostly cone 6, some raku. She creates stoneware and stoneware/porcelain mixed clay body.
