Rebecca Buglio・ Clay
Arrowmont Program and Studios Manager
Rebecca is a ceramic artist that finds herself at a crossroads between functional and sculptural art. By using her fascination with fungi, she attempts to capture and preserve moments where often familiar objects are in the process of being lost and altered to highlight the tangible decay in memory and the beauty of new growth that nature exemplifies.
Rebecca was born in Chicago, Illinois. She is an alum of the Rhode Island School of Design with a MFA in Ceramics (’16) and an alum of Berry College where she obtained her BA in art with concentrations in art education K-12 and studio art: ceramics (’13). She enjoys teaching children and adult ceramic courses on a variety of techniques when time allows. Rebecca currently resides in the Smoky Mountain region of Tennessee working at Arrowmont as the Program and Studio Manager.
