Sami Foster is a functional ceramic artist based in Denver. Sami received a B.S. in Neuroscience and previously worked as a genetics research scientist in New York City.


Sami’s artistic style is inspired by her inner child. Her designs feature vibrant pastel colors and whimsical shapes. Given Sami’s science background she also greatly enjoys experimenting with various glaze combinations and techniques.


Sami is joining ASLD as a Ceramics Apprentice starting in September 2023. During her apprenticeship, she will focus on learning the ceramic process and further developing her artistic vision.

ASLD’s Ceramics Apprenticeship is a yearlong appointment for an aspiring ceramist to receive one-on-one mentorship that provides a platform to build a sustainable career in ceramics.
