Regina Wickham has earned two degrees: a BA at the College of New Rochelle and a BFA from Bennington College, Vermont. Shortly after, she attended a summer workshop at Peter’s Valley Craftsmen, in New Jersey, and has been working as a studio potter since.
She moved to Cambridge, New York to study with Stanley Rosen and Jane Ford Aebersold at Bennington College in the mid-1970s, after early studies at Greenwich House Potters in New York. She has attended workshops with Hui Ka Kwong; Robert Piepenburg, a leading Raku artist and author; Phil Rogers; and others. Since 1986 Regina has worked in the studios of MugiPotters and Soho Potters in New York City. In 2000 she set up a studio at her home in Cambridge with a high-fire gas kiln.
Her work has been shown in various venues on the east coast, including cross-mackenzie gallery, Washington, D.C., Newport Potters Guild, Rhode Island; Gallery 668, N.Y.; Shelter Island Potters, N.Y.; Gallery 100, NY; erl Originals, North Carolina; Show of Hands, Pennsylvania; Nikos Designs, Tarrytown, N.Y.; Valley Artisans Market, N.Y.; Landscapes for Landsake, N.Y.; as well as Mugi Studios and Soho Potters. Her work has been chosen for the juried national ceramics show Strictly Functional Exhibit in Lancaster, Pa.
“I am a vessel maker; clay is the skin to contain a volume, defining and incorporating space. Glazes juxtapose color and texture: painting landscape, seascape, night sky.”
“The volumes and layers of the landscape of Washington Country inform my work as does the Chinese ceramic tradition which is my inspiration. I study their classic forms to understand the success of their curves, the space they envelop, and the space they exclude. I am a modern colorist painting my vessels with glazes that echo the earth and sky; making marks and drawing curves reflective of landscape.”

Regina’s beautiful home and studio are built high on a hill in Cambridge, New York with magnificent views of the surrounding landscapes. She works at her wheel facing a large window so she can enjoy and be inspired by the view. Much of her work is a reflection of the shapes, colors, and changing energy of the beautiful views throughout Washington County.
