Cori founded Yonkers Pottery in 2014 as a sanctuary to build community, courage and creativity via clay. She's completed 2 years of Steven Hill's Journey Workshop, and has studied ceramics in a wide range of studios, including Greenwich House Pottery, Lehman College, Alfred University, and Haystack Mounain School of Crafts. She's also worked as an assistant to production potter, Teresa Chang. She often looks to plant morphology and the ceramics, arts and crafts of ancient and traditonal cultures worldwide for inspiration for her coiled and pinched pieces.
While completing her BFA in Painting at Kutztown University of Pennsylvania Meghan took her first ceramics class. After graduation she continued on her own working in clay, then took an exchange position at Goggleworks, where she worked closely with the studio manager to learn about glazing and firing, and the ins and outs of studio maintenance. Her residency at Yonkers Pottery has allowed her time to develop a line of work that she sells online and at regional craft fairs.
