Gretchen Quinn earned her BA in sculpture from Providence College. For many years after she graduated, she worked as a graphic designer in Boston and Seattle. Realizing that she wanted to do more, she went back to working with clay. Gretchen creates beautiful pieces of pottery by applying her hand carved patterns onto clean, modern shapes. Her pottery is food, dishwasher and microwave safe (gold pieces should not be put in the microwave) and durably designed for everyday use.
