Ryanne Maldonado took a beginner's wheel throwing class at Penguin Foot in early 2013. She fell instantly, obsessively in love with pottery and started showing up to the studio every day thereafter. Three years and many successful craft shows later, she's now teaching the very class that first got her hooked.  Specializing in functional pieces for both plants and people, Ryanne's work has traveled as far as Norway and Guatemala and can be found online at setfiretoit.com.
