About the Instructor
Reida’s long standing relationship with the ceramic arts began here, in Floyd County. At the age of 12, she began working in a local Pottery Studio and developed many skills in production pottery, as well as sculptural techniques that have blossomed into her own style and personal voice as a ceramicist. Reida would soon turn her focus on figurative sculpture, creating a body of work that embraces the beauty of femininity and of nature. Reida has traveled the world working on sculptural projects of various scales, from ceramics, natural building and relief murals, festival installations to monuments and memorials, she is equipped to take on almost any creative endeavor in the sculptural and ceramic arts. Reida’s home ceramic studio is located in Check, with her partner Dan and their golden retriever Honey Bear and Cat Ume. She sells her work online, at festivals and craft fairs.
