Samantha Momeyer

Samantha Momeyer was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She obtained a BFA with a concentration in ceramics from California University of Pennsylvania in 2013. After graduating, she worked as a summer studio technician at Touchstone Center for Crafts in Farmington, PA. There she became enamored with the process of woodfiring and living in the woods. She spent the off seasons working as an apprentice at Ton Pottery in Pittsburgh. In 2015 Samantha was awarded the Pozefsky Fellowship at Baltimore Clayworks. After a year in Baltimore she longed to leave the hustle of the east coast for adventure. She was accepted as a post baccalaureate student at the University of Alaska Anchorage in 2016 and made the long drive from Baltimore to Anchorage with her partner, Shelsea Dodd. The rugged landscape and colors of Alaska have made a great impact on her work and life. After two years of studying in Alaska, she moved to Helena, Montana to work as Tara Wilson’s studio assistant before becoming a long term resident at Studio 740, where she now maintains a full-time studio practice.
In 2021, Momeyer was named one of Ceramics Monthly’s Emerging Artists. She’s also hilarious and has excellent taste in hip hop.
