More concise bio
Gary Rith started learning pottery in 1983 and earned a bachelor’s degree in art from Bennington College in 1987. He has been a full-time sculptor and potter since 1997. Gary started his business in New Hamspshire, where he was selected as a member of the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen in 2004 and in 2005 was named one of New Hampshire's Emerging Ceramics Artists. He moved to the Ithaca, NY area in 2006, near where he grew up, and is happily making pots and sculpture in a purple house on Fall Creek in the hamlet of Etna. Gary likes to laugh, and his first goal is to have fun making pots.
