Rikki Taylor creates highly decorative and colorful ceramic wares using high-density white ware clay and bright underglazes.
Rikki’s ceramic career began in 1975 while attending college in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. She became totally immersed in the process. With the endless creation of ceramic work and advances in the technical and safety aspects of clay, it was only a natural progression for her to move from the subtle earth tones of stoneware to the bright and dynamic colors of underglazes. The wonderful end results are Rikki’s eclectic creations of fun, bright and colorful ceramic art. Notably, Rikki’s work Running Man was purchased and resides in the Smithsonian’s Renwick Museum of American Craft.
