Lily grew up in Cavendish, VT where she raised goats and chickens with her parents and 2 siblings. She attended The University of Vermont where she received her BS in Environmental Science in 2016. While at UVM she came across the UVM pottery co-op where she started spending all of her free time taking classes, and eventually teaching classes for the majority of her undergrad. She left the co-op and set off to create her own studio space in the 2017 and has now been working out of her Cavendish home studio.
Her pottery reflects her playful and colorful outlook on Vermont life, focusing her attention on simple forms and surface decoration. Most of her work is wheel thrown using terra cotta, a red earthenware that allows bright colored slips and glazes to be applied.
