Emily Tani-Winegarden began her training in ceramics at Eden Prairie High School in 2009 where she began a pottery club. She then graduated from St. Olaf College in 2016 with a studio art major and management studies concentration while co-creating a cup library in honor of professor Ron Gallas and his legacy. Since graduating, Emily decided corporate America was not for her so she quit her 9-5 job to pursue her passion, ceramics. Emily predominately works in the medium of ceramics, but her repertoire also includes photography, painting, videography, and card making. Today, you can often find her in her home studio making pottery and capturing moments of bliss.
