Olivia Tarricone is an architect by training, and she lives in Houston, TX with her husband and baby son. Before moving to Houston in 2017, she lived in Philadelphia where she sought out the pottery wheel as an escape from straight lines and a retreat into the organic, rounded forms that emerge from a lump of clay. She fell in love with clay because of the humility it demands, and the connection it creates to the earth and the hands that form it.
After working in a community studio, she has transitioned to making work in her own studio space. She is currently experimenting with how forms can create their own surface decoration as they are dipped into liquid and record an intersection with the liquid plane.
