Betsy Williams
Santa Fe, NM

Betsy Williams is a functional potter who creates pots for everyday use and special occasions. She earned her undergraduate degree at St. John’s College, “The Great Book School” in Santa Fe, New Mexico. During her time as a day trader at a Japanese bank in New York City, her coworkers introduced her to ceramics. She moved to Karatsu, Japan to complete an apprenticeship with Mr. Yutaka Ohashi. She returned to New Mexico, where she established her studio practice. Williams and her husband Mark Saxe, a stone sculptor, opened Rift Gallery together in 2005. She has been a full-time professional potter since 2001. Of her current work, Williams states, “I am searching for a concurrence of subtlety and self-expression, minimalism and warmth, delicacy and usability, levity and weight, order and imperfection, tradition and originality.”
