Waithera Chege is born in Kenya where she got started in Ceramics while attending the Greenacres School. After said exposure, she knew right then and there, that her life from that point onwards was going to be filled with clay, kilns, experiments, meeting/sharing ideas with fellow artists.

She attended University of London, Goldsmiths College where she attained a Diploma in Ceramics and Loughborough University of Technology where she was a full time apprentice in Ceramics.

"In life, the path we choose to take is greatly influenced by those around you. In my case, I was fortunate to have been around encouraging and supportive people (artists, mentors, etc.) and organisations  which allowed me to pursue my dreams as an art professional in Ceramics & Pottery."
"Over the years, I've created a wide variety of ceramics and pottery artwork that was mostly stored in printed photographs or Kodak slides from yesteryear. Hence, I'm in the process of scanning EVERYTHING so that I can share my passion with everyone on the World Wide Web."
