Providence Road Pottery is owned by Ericka Ryba, a Knoxville based potter. She earned an A.A.S. in Culinary Arts from Johnson & Wales in Charleston, SC, a B.F.A. in studio Art and M.S. in Art Education from UT Knoxville. Ericka currently teaches art full time at Coulter Grove Intermediate School in Maryville and maintains a ceramics studio at Whimsy and a Dream in Knoxville. Ericka creates heirloom quality ceramics for the modern home, meant to last for generations but able to withstand everyday use. A monochromatic, neutral color palette unifies the pottery and allows collectors to mix and match pieces for their own custom collection. Subtle textures and surface decoration combined with various clay bodies add interest and variety to each piece. Providence Road pots will complement farmhouse decor to modern and minimalist aesthetics.
