ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Becca Irvin was born and raised in west Tennessee. Having always been interested in art, Becca chose to pursue a degree in art at East Tennessee State University. Her senior year she helped lead a team to build a soda fired kiln. She went on to receive a full scholarship to study ceramics in Tuscany, Italy at the Spannocchia Castello Institute in 2013.
After graduating with a BFA in ceramics in 2014, Becca worked on an apprenticeship under the direction of Greg Pace, a renowned master potter. Together, they built a 65 cubic foot gas firing car kiln that is still used to fire their wares in. Under his direction, she learned to calculate glazes and master the crystalline glazing process.
In the fall of 2019, Becca was accepted into a residency at the Sanbao Ceramic International Art Institute where she produced and exhibited wares in Jingdezhen, China and traveled abroad for six weeks.
She has worked full time in the Mount Pisgah Pottery Studio right outside of Asheville, North Carolina since 2015 and now has plans to move her studio closer to Chattanooga, Tennessee in 2020.
