Sipper, Rebecca, a Georgia native, is currently an active studio artist in the Savannah area and operates Retrofied, an independent handbag company. She also teaches printmaking locally at the Telfair Museum of Art and Savannah’s Clay Spot. Her undergraduate work includes Berry College and Oglethorpe University. She received a B.A. in Studio Art and a B.A. in Psychology from Oglethorpe University.
Her ceramic vessels, fibers and print making together and separately celebrate time and place along the Georgia Coast. Her work celebrates history and tradition combining past and present with love of nature and people in utilitarian art. Her objective is to translate her own personal experience along the Coast, through narrative imagery on the utilitarian form.
She has continued her artistic education locally at S.P.A.C.E and Savannah’s Clay Spot as well as at Arrowmont School of Craft in Tennessee, Lillstreet Art Center in Chicago, IL and Mudfire in Atlanta, GA. She is a member of Gallery 209 a local co-op and displays work at Roots Up Gallery and Asheville Museum of Art store as well as in gallery space in downtown Savannah’s City Market.
