About the Artist
Abby Barringer is an up and coming ceramic artist. Her specialties include wheel thrown pottery and complex designs that she accomplishes by carving and smoothing them into her pottery. The work produced by Abby is not only functional but intricate and decorative, based on her meticulous and detailed geometric carving. Abby began throwing pottery in 2013 and found her love for geometric carving in 2015 where she began to center her work around this concept.
Abby graduated from East Carolina University, where she received her bachelor’s degree in fine arts. She has been awarded the 2016 Nell Cole Graves Award in Ceramics. Abby studied under Bobbie Thomas of Thomas Pottery through an internship with the North Carolina Pottery Center in 2016.
Currently, Abby is a technical assistant and instructor at Clayworks, as well as an instructor at The Little Studio in Charlotte, NC. When not making and selling pottery, you can usually find Abby either hanging out with her dog, Lavender, cooking, or gardening.
