Our Potter in Residence

Neisha Whitaker

To me, Pottery is Timeless, Spiritual, Intriguing and I was drawn to it’s beauty long before I began my journey to become a Potter. From the moment I sat down at the wheel and put my hands to clay I found it challenging, yet therapeutic. I began my journey at Missouri State where I was introduced to the world of clay and I never looked back. I later worked as an apprentice under Bari Precious a locally loved Potter. Bari taught me how to fine tune my skills of taking raw clay and turning it into a finished piece of art. She greatly blessed me. I then went on to learn and work beside Hue Parnell another amazing local Potter where I learned a new and exciting side of Pottery. The art of Teaching Pottery. I have been greatly blessed by my teachers and all the knowledge they have passed to me.
