Melanie Wulforst is a studio potter whose work is an exploration of cultural and historical pattern on traditional pottery form. She received her BFA from New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University in 2014 and has been making pottery and attending craft shows full time since 2019. In her studio practice, Melanie creates her porcelain forms on the potter’s wheel or from molded slabs. She uses the slip-trailing technique to adorn her pieces with pattern and applies celadon glazes to highlight them. Her work is fired to cone 10 in an electric kiln.
