"Thousands of RISD alumni around the world find joy and personal satisfaction in designing and making original work. Since many also run online retail shops, RISDmade offers a convenient way to find quality alumni work produced well beyond our campus in Providence, RI.*
The work highlighted on RISDmade is as diverse and eclectic as our community, yet it shares certain recognizable qualities reflective of the values RISD alumni bring to the objects they make: an understanding of materials, exquisite craftsmanship and a strong personal voice.
Now that we have launched this new RISD resource, we hope that you’re able to readily connect with members of our talented creative community. And while we can’t represent all the work we’d ideally like to share, the collection will be refreshed periodically.
Whether you’re a member of our global RISD community or are discovering the work of RISD makers for the first time, we hope RISDmade helps you find it more easily. And remember: buying art makes everyone feel happier!"
