Melissa Mytty was born and raised in the suburbs of Detroit. She received her BFA in ceramics from CCS in Detroit in 2005 and her MFA in ceramics from Cranbrook in 2007.
Mytty's work focuses on the vessel format created by hand building techniques. She often injects elements into her work from her own interests that include food, travel, patterning, and fashion.
Each form is one-of-a-kind, handmade, and uniquely glazed by creating variations on every design. Mytty has exhibited nationally and is currently living and working out of her studio in Collegeville, PA.
