Alongside my journey through anthropology and Louisiana, I cultivated my skills at creating wheel-thrown pottery under the auspices of trace_artifacts. Many of my pieces experiment with mixing different clay bodies, including materials I find while out in the marshes of south Louisiana. You can follow my work on Instagram @ trace_artifacts

I am not yet into the world of online retail, but if you are in New Orleans you can pick-up some of my pieces at Byrdie’s Pottery Studio 2402 St. Claude Ave. New Orleans, LA
