Morgan Calderini surrounds herself with rather odd yet satisfying specialties: hot air balloon building, printmaking, and pie baking are all things she takes very seriously. After having received her BFA in Printmaking from RISD in 2007, Calderini chose to redefine the hierarchical printshop archetype by establishing and managing Rhode Island's only community printshop at AS220 with a grant from AmeriCorps VISTA. She has taught letterpress at the AS220 Printshop and Penland School of Crafts, and has spoken at conferences such as the Kernference hosted by Goodtype and at the annual Wayzgoose at Hamilton Wood Type and Printing Museum. When she's not baking blueberry pies or hunting for long lost litho stones that people have been using as door stops, she's flying Atlas, her 70 foot, 54,000 cu. ft. hot air balloon that she built in 2007.
