Moye Thompson | Ceramist
Born and raised in Georgia, Moye comes from twelve generations of Southern farmers and has always felt a connection to the earth, to dirt and mud and clay.
After earning a bachelor's degree in Fine Arts from Harvard, Moye spent time in Cairo, Washington D.C., and New York, where she worked as a magazine writer by day and a ceramist by night before opening Earthworks Pottery Studio in Manhattan.
More recently, Moye's work has become increasingly influenced by the rich history of design and architecture in Southern California, where she now calls home. The dark colors of New York that once inspired her have given way to the greens and blues of the California coastline, and her forms, once strictly functional, now bring pebbles, twigs, wire, paper, and words into play.
Moye's work has been featured in a number of publications, including Architectural Digest, Elle Décor UK, Los Angeles Magazine, Angeleno, The Wall Street Journal, and the Los Angeles Times.
