As a BFA graduate from the University of Wisconsin-River Falls, Bri makes functional pottery in New England, though she remains a Midwesterner at heart. Her pottery is thrown on the wheel and afterwards adorned with colorful clays and bold lines. Bri's work is an invitation to take notice of small details in daily life and personal interests and honoring them through patterned imagery. Through the use of her pottery, she invites the user to celebrate the handmade and build connections every day through their food and beverage rituals.
Bri earned her BFA from the University of Wisconsin-River Falls in 2013 with a major in ceramics and a minor in painting. She has been a teacher of adults and children alike at local art centers. Originally from the great state of Minnesota, Bri relocated to Providence, RI in 2018 where she started a two year residency at The Steel Yard.
Her ceramic work has been featured in galleries and art shows across the nation and she has even made a couple of appearances in Ceramics Monthly. Bri currently has her studio located in the Nicholson File Artist Community in Providence, RI where she focuses on functional and sculptural ceramics in addition to dabbling in printmaking and painting.
When Bri is not working in the studio, you can find her biking and hiking the outdoors, hanging out with her circus cat, knitting, or playing games with friends.
