Victoria “Vikki” Littlejohn is a prolific potter from California having a career spanning more than 45 years. She completed her Bachelor’s and Master’s from the University of Southern California in 1962, and majored in ceramics and secondary teaching credentials. Victoria studied under eminent potters such as Carlton Ball, Susan H Petersen, Peter Voulkos and Marguerite Wildenhain at that time.
For a couple of years after her studies, she juggled between teaching in a high school, and working as an assistant to potter Tom Mcmillin. However, she soon realised her dream of her own studio when she started ‘Victoria Littlejohn Ceramics’ in Oregon in 1964. That was the starting point to an illustrious career, in which she produced excellent ceramic works including pots, planters, trivets, etc., and showcasing her pieces in exhibitions all over the world.
Her more recent works include creating a cactus inspired line of articles, and the items she made using terracotta clay for Beatrice Wood Center for the Arts. In 2010, she became associated wth Ventura County Potter’s Guild.
