I started my career as an engineer and I have worked and lived in several countries. These life experiences have led me to think about our sense of place, the impact of resources we consume in our daily lives, and to appreciate our local culture.

Through Stephanie Boyd Works, I strive to create beautiful, functional objects that support the joy in life’s simple pleasures: a serving platter for farm fresh vegetables, a vase for a handful of wild flowers, a cozy mug for hot tea.

I started working with clay in the 1990’s in Montreal. At that time, I was focusing on slab built sculptural work. I spent a year visiting and working in studios of ceramicists in the Czech Republic. While I was there, I had a wonderful opportunity to have a show in Brno, CR with some fellow Canadians. (I am a Canadian).

I then returned to more traditional ‘work’ as a management consultant in Czech Republic, Canada and USA. Most recently I founded and ran the sustainability office at Williams College. About 2 years ago, I made the decision to return to artistic endeavors.
