Gail Savitz: About me
My undergraduate training was not in fine art but in comparative literature at Scripps College in Claremont, California. I received an MFA degree in Ceramics from the Claremont Graduate School. After graduating, I lived and made pottery in NYC. I moved to Northport, Maine in 1971 where I married and raised two sons.
I make both functional and one-of-a-kind pieces, both hand-built and wheel-thrown pottery using stoneware, and porcelain clay in my studio on the waterfront in Belfast, Maine.
