Cheyenne Mallo graduated with a BFA in printmaking and ceramics from the University of Wisconsin – River Falls in 2010. Since relocating to the Hudson Valley in 2011, she has continued her studio practice making functional ceramics and continues exploring the Catskill Mountains that inspire her work.

Tara Hagen graduated top of her class from New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University with a BFA in Printmaking and Ceramics in 2011. Since then, Tara has worked as an artist and educator, teaching at the Memorial Art Gallery’s Creative Workshop, Art Centro, Children’s Home of Kingston, and Women’s Studio Workshop. Tara continues to deepen her understanding of the ceramics medium by working in the studios of artists, such as Ayumi Horie and Julianne Swartz. In her personal practice, she makes functional ceramics and woodcut prints that turn small moments into bold experiences.
Ruth McKinney Burket received her MFA in Ceramics at SUNY New Paltz where she teaches as an adjunct professor. Her work explores the link between art and community building and has found that clay is a great vessel for bringing people together. As WSW’s Ceramics Studio Manager, she is kept busy maintaining the studio and supervising clay classes and events such as WSW’s annual Chili Bowl Fundraiser. She is always up for creative conversation over a cozy cup of tea (in hand made mugs of course!).
