Benedict, Faith

Faith Benedict is a potter and teacher operating the Fire Works Pottery studio in Penn Yan, NY. Her journey in art and in pottery began in the 1970’s when she was first introduced to the fields. Over the years, Faith has worked as a potter, a public school art teacher and a college ceramics professor. Today, she has returned to life as a potter, adding teaching in her studio to her schedule. She continues to create, exhibit and sell her pottery. She is rooted as a potter to wheel-thrown functional stoneware but is enjoying the playfulness that can be creating with hand building. She aims to make pottery that is functional, practical and pleasant to live with.
