The Clay Studio will be closed on Monday, May 29 in observance of Memorial Day.
Samantha Bartletts interest in ceramics became ignited after helping fire the wood kiln at
Wheaton Arts in Millville, NJ. She began learning to throw in several small studios around
Philadelphia and continued her journey after moving to Fairbanks, Alaska.
Studying at The University of Alaska, she enjoyed learning about atmospheric firing by
working with anagama and reduction kilns. After moving back to South Jersey, Samantha
became an intern at Wheaton Arts of South Jersey and began to pursue ceramics as a career.
In 2021 she became an associate potter. She makes functional pottery which typically starts on
the wheel and is often hand altered to create unique forms. All of her work is fired in a salt or
gas reduction kiln to cone 10. She enjoys playing with subtle patterns which reference nature on the surfaces of her pots by using flashing slips and a wax resist method.
