Debbie Reichard

Ceramics Studio Manager

Welcome to New College West! As the manager of the New college West Ceramics Studio, I coordinate all the ceramics studio operations and events. I am an artist and ceramics instructor, and I have had the good fortune to teach, learn, and work at ceramics studios in art centers, craft schools, and universities around this country. My MFA is from the University of Washington, and I have taught ceramics and sculpture at Indiana University, Indianapolis, The University of Southern Maine, University of Colorado, and Bucks County Community College. I have attended artist residencies at the Kohler Company, WI; Sculpture Space, NY; Peters Valley, NJ; Southern Methodist University, TX; and Rockland in Bremerton WA. My artwork has been included in exhibitions at the Jersey City Museum, Dallas International Airport, Aljira Center for Contemporary Art, the Newark Museum of Art, and the Children's Museum, Pittsburgh, PA. 

I live in the Sourlands Area of New Jersey where I enjoy hiking, growing vegetables and medicinal herbs, making fermented foods (in my specialty ceramic fermentation pots) and going to the beach with my partner and daughter. Please drop me an email or stop by the ceramics studio to chat! I’m looking forward to helping you or your group become involved in the studio.
