Michele earned her BFA from the NYSCC at Alfred University after spending six years as a ceramicist for Timeless Tiles: a studio specializing in handmade tiles and architectural installations. She studied sculpture and moldmaking under Petras Vaskys, Bente Hansen, and Laszlo Fekete. A residency at Hurricane Mountain Clay Studio first brought her to the Adirondacks, where she is now co-owner of The Orendaga on Northville Lake, The Main House Gallery, and Bellwether Craftsmen.
"A distinct eye for design paired with fine craftsmanship, and a refined love of food: from garden to table - is brought together in functional, affordable fine art.
The result is a rare find."
