In 2020, The Clay Studio will relocate to its new home on N. American Street between Master and Jefferson Streets. In preparation for our move, we are having conversations and sharing meals with the residents there through a series of free community workshops. We want to know our future neighbors' thoughts and feelings about their community — their memories and hopes for the future.clay & conversation
Meet our artists
Skin sags, charcoal crumbles, folds wrinkle, ceramic cracks, bones creak, and wood arches. In my work I externalize and personify moments of bodily reality, the wonderful and fearful things I sense under the skin of life. To understand the inevitable, the terror and beauty of physical deterioration is a way to transcend—to hold the intangible beyond.
My studio acts as a space for me to both escape and explore the world. By pulling on personal, social, and constructed symbols, I remove them from direct, cultured meaning. I weave them together to create a new fabric that is at once personal and universal. It serves as a critical look at the way knowledge is acculturated and understood. My works lends itself to circuitous mental exploration of vague memories, tactile remembrances, and unknown systems of logic.
