Free Ceramics is the family business Emily Free Wilson runs with her husband and brother out of her home studio in Helena, Montana. She creates simple, functional forms out of porcelain clay, charmingly decorated with dots and lines that dance across the surface in an abstract impression of raindrops and wind. Working in clay gives her the opportunity to add joy, whimsy, even happy surprises to other people's lives. Wilson received a BFA in ceramics from the University of Wisconsin–Madison in 2001. When she is not working on making her own pottery, she directs the gallery at the Archie Bray Foundation for the Ceramic Arts.
