Rice Evans is a multi-medium artist primarily working in clay. Originally from the Midwest, Evans received her BFA from New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University in 2016 and her MFA in Ceramics from Virginia Commonwealth University in 2021. Previously, Evans worked for the John Michael Kohler Art Center’s Arts/Industry program in both the pottery and foundry.

Currently, she is adjunct faculty and Ceramic Studio Coordinator in the Clay Area of the Craft/Material Studies department at Virginia Commonwealth University. To quote Evans about her work: “My art practice meanders through concepts, techniques, and mediums to arrive at a messy, confusing, and overwhelming shared experience of digital life. It is here where we find humor, creativity, and most importantly our own contemporary folk culture.
Every handmade piece at Alma’s is a story of its craft.
