RISD Alum Alison Evans
Degree Ceramics
Year 1998

Alison Evans launched Coastal Ceramics in 2002 from a studio in East Boothbay, ME, just feet from the ocean — the source of inspiration for her dinnerware and tabletop accessories. “Barnacles become candleholders, oyster shells become bowls,” she says, explaining how she translates natural forms into objects that are both appealing and functional. Evans began her ceramics studies under Nino Caruso at Textura, an artists’ commune in Gijon, Spain, and was so inspired by the art that she decided to pursue it as a career; after finishing her degree at RISD she continued her training as a studio assistant to artist Katy Schimert in New York. Today Coastal Ceramics pieces can be found at specialty galleries in the Northeast and Florida.
