Deborah Goldman’s fascination with porcelain has spanned decades. It was through a series of workshops, most notably a summer spent at the NYS College of Ceramics at Alfred, that Deborah first discovered porcelain and began her career in clay. Over the years her work has evolved from an emphasis on functional pottery to vessels that exploit the translucent qualities of the medium. Most recently she had been exploring the relationship between individual forms by working in multiples.

Deborah has exhibited her work both locally and nationally. She has participated in highly competitive shows such as the Smithsonian Craft Show and the Philadelphia Museum Show. Her work has been seen in solo and group shows in museums and galleries.

After teaching ceramics at The Spence School in New York City for decades, and commuting between the city and rural New Paltz, NY, Deborah now resides full time on the “Farmden” (more than a garden, less than a farm) created by her husband Lee Reich. “My commute to my studio is a walk across a field, a huge improvement over 2 hours on a bus each way to and from work!”
