Based in Portland, Maine, Ayumi Horie believes that the best handmade pottery encourages connections between people and makes daily life better. Her activism and advocacy promote thoughtful craft practice and support for makers around the world. In this upending year of the pandemic, Ayumi has been putting a few projects aside and to work on new ones and to dig into organizational board work to help create a more equitable craft field.
