A Photo Series About the People of Northwest Arkansas: Our Favorite Villes
I’m so excited to share these photographs of Rebecca with you! Rebecca of Rebecca Black Pottery in Rogers, Arkansas is the freaking best. She is effortlessly cool, totally chill, and so freaking creative, too. And her items + in home studio? You’re going to adore them! I love a lot about Rebecca’s work but the main thing is this: it just feels so effortlessly earthy + cozy. The lines, the etching, all of it is just so fun and vibrant and cozy. And yes! I just said cozy twice in two sentences… and I’m going to say it like forty five more times in our podcast recording. Her work has a total vibe and I’m here for it!
So! Let’s get to know Rebecca! If you don’t know her already, you’re going to adore her.

Rebeca’s pieces are all made with heart in Northwest Arkansas. And honestly? She’s a total gem and I so loved chatting with her + taking these absolutely gorgeous photos! Rebecca knew I’d be totally obsessed with the light in her studio and, y’all, it didn’t disappoint. I’m so excited about these!
