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
An object is more than just a thing. I create vessels for ideas and memories: coffee with friends, a basket for my dad’s oranges, a stand for grandmother’s Christmas desserts, a platter for aunt’s hors d’oeuvres, a vase to hold flowers for my mom. This sense of community with family and friends has shown me its importance, and in this way, I seek community engagement through the practice of making and using hand-made objects.
Currently I am working on a project dealing with identity within the digital. It is all very surface. These glimpses into others lives that are not exactly real, not exactly false.... With ceramics, I am replicating the digital objects in the physical world and vice versa. I want them to be between here and there. I cover them with digital skins of what they are constructing with images from online image searches and adding lighting to make them appear natural. I believe that there is an attempt through this handmade recreation to force a more intimate experience of the digital.
