High Fidelity with ceramicist Maria White


Mount Pleasant ceramicist Maria White has embraced the healing power of pottery in her own life. She extends that experience to others through her community outreach nonprofit Mugs for Moms, which she founded after surviving postpartum anxiety and depression. By providing pottery classes and mental health resources, White has helped bring together women of diverse backgrounds to harness the therapeutic aspects of artistic expression. She gave the Charleston City Paper a list of albums that help her get out of any creative funk:



Ma Vlast by Bedřich Smetana
Clandestino by Manu Chao
Il buono, il brutto, il cattivo by Ennio Morricone
Echo and The Bunnymen by Echo and The Bunnymen
The Essential Nina Simone by Nina Simone
