Patti Carmen Whitehead

Patti's first introduction to clay was in 1997 in the community studio of Doe Ridge Pottery. A few years later she was employed there as a studio assistant and class instructor. She now maintains a pottery studio at her home in Boone producing functional wares for the kitchen and home.

Patti finds excitement in being fully immersed in the many aspects of product design. She strives to make pots that are functional as well as appealing to the eye. Additionally, she wants her pots to be comfortable to hold and use so that they will be picked up and used again and again.

Her work can be seen on Instagram @pcpttry, or at Doe Ridge Pottery in Boone.
