Fulfilling a dream she'd had since attending her first pottery class in 1994, Cori Morenberg founded Yonkers Pottery in 2014. She's studied ceramics in a wide range of studios, including Greenwich House Pottery, Lehman College, New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University, and Haystack Mountain School of Crafts. She's made Yonkers Pottery a sanctuary where community, courage and creativity in clay are cultivated. She makes highly-textured hand-built utilitarian ware.
