Erin Dean is a potter who resides in Harrisburg, PA. She has been working in clay for 7 years and also teaches third grade. As an artist, she pulls inspiration from the world and people around her and tries to bring this to life in her work. She is interested in creating pottery that will be used in people’s homes, “everyday” pots. Creating utilitarian pottery establishes a connection between the maker and the user of the piece. Each time the user comes in contact with the piece, it can be loved and appreciated.
