Kari Radasch is a native Mainer, potter and tile maker living in Portland Maine. She received her BFA from the Maine College of Art and her MFA from the University of Nebraska - Lincoln. Kari aims to make celebratory pottery using earthenware clay and color as a metaphor for joy. She plucks nostalgic observations from her life and reassembles and reimagines these investigations, onto functional dishes-- a format that has the unique ability to hold a warm, sentimental place in our lives. She has taught workshops and lectured across the country and loves to share her excitement for clay with her students.
