A lifetime Mainer, Becky Wright cherishes the landscapes and skylines she sees everyday. She grew up on a small farm in Vassalboro and then moved to South Portland at age eleven. After a few moves, she came back to her childhood home in South Portland where she feels her most creative, near the water with it’s big open sky. These horizons and seascapes inspire her glazed works as she overlaps two colors to let the lines blur, creating intense color combinations with depth and alluring details.
Wright taught elementary Art for two decades in the Windham and South Portland public schools before making the big leap in 2016 to becoming a full time potter. Her studio is in her home, where she lives with her husband and their three children.
Wright’s work is available at the Center for Maine Craft, and online.
