My name is Mea Rhee, and I am the potter behind Good Elephant Pottery. I make functional pottery for daily use, fired to cone 6 in an electric kiln. My designs are minimal and rustic, and always functional. I consider myself "self-taught" in that I am not formally trained in ceramics, though I have had many wonderful teachers along the way. My degree is in graphic design, and most of my professional life has revolved around a busy design studio. In 2010, I was able to â€œretireâ€ from design and devote a full-time schedule to the pottery studio. I put â€œretireâ€ in quotes because I now work harder than ever before. It is a dream come true and I am grateful for this every day.
