Meet the Maker:

WHO ARE YOU, WHERE ARE YOU FROM, & WHAT DO YOU DO?
Hi! My name is Ramsey Rigdon and I’m from Metter, Georgia! On most weekdays, you can find me working with the Kids Ministry at Connection Church in Statesboro. A lot of my free time after my 9-5 is spent creating clay earrings, behind a camera, or out enjoying the Lord’s beautiful creation!

DESCRIBE YOUR PROCESS.
I begin with a conditioning a block of clay. Once it’s a smooth slab, I use other colors of clay to create a pattern or different pieces to create a texture. I cut out many different shapes in the clay, before baking and assembling!

WHAT INSPIRES YOU?
So many different things, from nature to random home decor!

FUN FACT ABOUT YOU.
I’ve spent the night in a funeral home hundreds of nights!

FAVORITE THING ABOUT DOWNTOWN AUGUSTA.
I’ve never been to downtown Augusta but am looking forward to exploring around the local shops!

WHY DO YOU LOVE TO DESIGN, CREATE + MAKE?
The Lord created me with a creative mind! I find joy in every step of the designing, creating, and making process for His glory!

WHAT IS ONE PIECE OF ADVICE YOU WOULD SHARE WITH OTHER ARTISTS + MAKERS?
Enjoy every step! Every tedious (and sometimes aggravating) step of the process!
