Raised in the countryside of SW Michigan, I began playing with clay as a child. Determined to break past the boundaries of my sweet country life, I studied textiles and ceramics at Savannah College of Art & Design. Upon graduation, I moved to San Francisco, working for artists and hosting workshops. I decided to take a leap and start my own ceramics company. Originally, Latch Key was only ceramic jewelry but has evolved to be sculpturally influenced, with a focus on individuality and function.
