As one of the largest handmade pottery companies in the United States, Rebecca Wood’s R. Wood Studio currently employs six artists who oversee production of her nationally-renowned ceramics. Wood opened her studio in 1991 with the vision to create quality ceramics made for regular use, and to run her business in a way that benefits artists. By hiring fellow artists, Wood nurtures their creative lives, giving them flexibility to pursue their own artistic endeavors and breathing room from what can otherwise be a monotonous and stressful life. In addition to artwork by previous employees, the exhibition spotlights current employees Hannah Jones, Esther Mech, Josh Skinner, Michael Wheeler, Caden Cruze, Stephen Corall and Nicole Martin.
