Matlakwauhtli Mayforth was a college student in Monterey California when she discovered ceramics. In 1977, she returned to her native state of Vermont, rented space in a pottery studio and went to work. Today, Matlakwauhtli is a studio potter and teaches clay classes for the Town of Bristol.
I work hard to create forms that are both functional and aesthetically pleasing. I believe that a good pot wants to be held! My stoneware pots are glazed with Vermont river clay.
