About Moye

Born and raised in Atlanta, from a long line of Southern farmers, Moye has always felt a deep connection to the earth, to dirt and mud and clay.

After earning a bachelors degree in Fine Arts from Harvard, she lived in Cairo and D.C., before settling in New York, where she worked as a magazine writer by day and a ceramist by night, first as a student, then teacher, and finally owner of Earthworks Pottery Studio in Manhattan.

Since moving to Santa Monica in the late ‘90s, her work has been strongly influenced by the rich history of design and architecture in Southern California and by the light and colors of its canyons and coastline. The dark glazes of New York have given way to the greens and blues of California, and her forms, once strictly functional, now bring pebbles, twigs, wire, paper, and words into play.

Moye’s work has been featured in Architectural Digest, Elle Décor UK, Los Angeles Magazine, Angeleno, The Wall Street Journal, and the Los Angeles Times, among other publications.

Moye has also participated in a number of group exhibitions and solo shows including:

Moye lives in Santa Monica Canyon with her husband, two college-age (Covid-grounded) children, and one spectacular, muddy mutt.

She is currently working on a series designed exclusively for My Hand In Yours — a website created by Jamie Lee Curtis supporting Children's Hospital Los Angeles.
