About Kyle Smith
Kyle is originally from Lancaster, PA. He was introduced to pottery by his high school ceramics teacher, James Gallagher, who encouraged him to attend Kutztown University because of their excellent art department. Kyle graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Art Education and studied ceramics under James Chaney while at Kutztown. After moving to South Carolina, Kyle began teaching art in the Richland One School District and in the fall of 2008, he finished construction of his ceramics studio where he spends many hours creating pottery.
Kyle resides in Columbia, SC with his wife Kim, who is his biggest fan, and their furry little buddies.
You may contact Kyle by phone or email if you would like more information or if you would like to place an order.
You can usually find Kyle at Soda City on Saturday mornings, 9am-1pm.
Kyle’s pottery is also available at the Cotton Mill Exchange, the gift shop at the SC State Museum and on Etsy at https://www.etsy.com/shop/KyleSmithPottery.
