Allison Ladd is the women who started it all! She spent many years living and navigating the corporate world, one day she just knew that she needed to get back to being the artist she was. Allison went head first into making her dreams become a reality, she returned to Harvard/Radcliffe and furthered developed her pottery skills. She started her own successful ceramics studio in South Carolina. She felt drawn to Peru in search of talented potters who could help support her production of pottery. As Allison has said, “within three days of her arrival in Peru, she was in love!”
