Pottery is a second chapter in life for Maggy Ames. Trained as an attorney, she practiced in New York City for 35 years, representing the interests of people with developmental disabilities. During that time, the part-time pursuit of her pottery studio was a haven of peace and quiet from the politically stormy world of her work. In 2009, she retired from the practice of law and came to pottery full-time.

Her interest in ceramics was first sparked during her years at Skidmore College. Though she never studied in that renowned ceramic program, she watched enviously as classmates immersed themselves in clay. Immediately after completing law school, she decided that clay would be her new learning project.

Today, she is a full-time potter. Maggy and her partners operate one of the few remaining working clay studios in Manhattan.
