Tricia Schmidt
Saint Paul, MN

Tricia Schmidt is a potter and ceramic jewelry artist from St. Paul, MN. Her functional work draws inspiration from the rich history of handmade ceramics in the Twin Cities area, and combines that influence with her love of illustration.  Her favorite pieces use unexpected forms and images juxtaposed against each other to celebrate the absurd, or to speak to the anxiety and feelings of disconnect all too prevalent in society today. Her jewelry utilizes graphic, simple colors and shapes, and came about as a way to continue making work when her children were young and she had no home studio. Tricia is also a high school ceramics teacher, and so she is constantly learning new things for and from her students, which helps keep her own work fresh and ever-evolving.
