Kelley E. Foy is a maker and master craftsman. After more than 20 years as a furniture designer revealing the possibilities of handcrafted wood and steel, she has made her way back to her origins in clay. In the spaces between, she has explored the food culture phenomena from the inside out as the owner and operator of two acclaimed restaurants. All the while, she has been blending and building on her clay, wood, and steel explorations. Foy’s work is influenced by the cultures of her home in the Southwest and, more recently, her steep in the deeply rooted craft culture of the New South in Nashville and Knoxville, Tennessee. Her work has been featured in Phoenix Home and Garden, Arizona Foothills Magazine, Phoenix Magazine, Arizona Highways and Sunset. Foy hand builds and throws functional pieces that are beautiful and accessible — “Something you can actually hold in your hand and use everyday,” she explains. She earned her BFA in Ceramics from Arizona State University. She has taught ceramics at Yavapai College and currently manages their Art Gallery. Kelley worked with the renowned Don Reitz and is currently part of the team building an arts program at the Reitz Ranch including workshops and classes.
