Tabbatha studied ceramics in earnest during college, then spent the next 10 or so years honing her technical skills during studio exchanges and work studies in private and community studios. Finally, after learning what she could through sheer trial and error, (still the best teachers, she believes) yet still yearning for serious feedback and aesthetic criticism, she went back to graduate school. She received her MFA from the School for American Crafts at the Rochester Institute of Technology in 2005. Ready to take on the world, she moved back to Vermont soon after, and in 2008 launched Tabbatha Henry Designs.
It is her goal to create inspiring designs infused with nature, crafted with integrity. Each piece is made by hand in her Vermont studio. Assisted by Cadence Shae, they cast, decorate, fire, and ship from an old grist mill, overlooking an ever-changing river in Northern Vermont. They do their best to create unique and inspiring works of art to be enjoyed for generations to come.
