Lori creates a popular line of "XO" mugs and cups, and she had just begun development on a new approach to some cups when the ACW contest was announced. Her new line, based on 'tic-tac-toe' features an "X" on one side, and "O" on the other. She says, “ it gave me a whimsical way to celebrate ‘American Craft Week X’ with this Tower of Ten X Cups, celebrating the great accomplishments of American Craft Week and my own ability to make a living, give work to others, and collaborate with incredible clients in the field of handmade ceramics.”


Lori Theriault makes pots for home and professional kitchens,. It was her own love of cooking that helped her make an immediate connection at her first pottery class, and she hasn't looked back since! Her work is inspired by the creative collaborations she has with her clients, and her belief that homemade tastes better on handmade. Her work is notable for its individual, handmade design.
