Rebecca Wood came to Athens in 1975 as an art student at the University of Georgia. 25 years later, she's still an artist in the city and runs a pottery studio in the Carr's Hill area.

Wood's path to running a pottery studio came in a roundabout fashion, as she went from selling paintings to working in a medium more people could afford following a recession. Now, she employs several artists in her shop and sells products in Athens and across the country.

The Red & Black spoke with Wood about Athens, art and her career through the decades, as well as took a look at how R. Wood Studio runs every day. You can view the studio's site here.
