Samuel Little is an artist, graphic designer, and entrepreneur. He grew up in the Mississippi Delta and earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Commercial Design with a Printmaking minor from Delta State University (DSU). In 1984 at DSU he was introduced to ceramics and throwing clay. He instantly loved it and lived in dirty jeans for the rest of his college years.
In 1989, Samuel moved to the Richmond, Virginia area seeking new beginnings in all aspects of his life. This is a long story of perseverance.
In November of 2013, Samuel started taking pottery classes at Rosewood Pottery in Richmond, Virginia where he is now an integral part. Samuel lives and produces functional pottery, hanging planters, and succulent planters near Ashland, Virginia under the brand name 580Pottery. Now, Samuel is making his way into Richmond’s regional pottery community with volunteering and showings.
Samuel is the founder and owner of SLGD, a local marketing company founded in 1995 that helps small businesses in digital marketing with a focus on website development and grassroots marketing.
Thanks for reading Samuel's story :)
