I'm Will Donovan, and I'm a potter.
I grew up in South Carolina, and transitioned from the coastline to the mountains when I was 20 years old. That move was that catalyst that lead to my first brush with clay, and would change my life forever. I've worked in the ceramics world for 10 years now, from every different angle; material distribution, teaching, managing studios, ceramic equipment sales, and production potter. I've soaked up every aspect of the clay world I can possibly emerge myself.
Currently I am self employed in my home studio in Greenville, SC as a studio artist making handmade pottery for individuals and businesses. I am proud to have collaborated with local chefs in James Beard award winning restaurants, local coffee shops, interior design stores, and private collectors nationwide. While my work spans a variety of forms, each piece I make is grounded in function, and the ability to be apart of serving others through the objects I create is something that I take great pride and joy in.
