Rachel O’Flannagan established her production-based pottery studio practice, “RAOstudio” in January 2014 in Manhattan, Kansas and is now located in Kansas City, Missouri.
“Each piece I create is hand-crafted with a heavy influence of both mod designs and geometric patterns. I strive to create pieces that people want in their homes, inside their cupboards, on their coffee tables, and in their lives. I want my work to serve a purpose–to form a bond with its owner and be used. Turning a ball of raw clay into a functional object that not only serves a purpose to someone, but is appreciated and cherished is my goal.”
