Michelle  Heinesen

Artist statement :

As a studio ceramist my work is sculptural & functional , generally with a heavy influence of Singaporean & Faroese folk art, landscapes, cultural references as well as personal experience.

 My current body of work explores interpersonal relationships in relation to divergent manifestations of intersectionality, displacement, social & emotional isolation and sense of identity and mundanity in modern Life. 

It is my desire to reinstate the value of the handmade object and to see this object as a metaphor for the importance of the individual and the value of shared human experience.  This effort forms a bridge between the traditions of the past and concerns of the present to create a springboard for future work.

Sierra  Estes

Artist statement:

My love for ceramics is rooted in the experience of working with the earth and being able to bring that connection to others through functional objects used in everyday rituals like morning coffee, preparing food to nurture ourselves, and communing over a
meal together.
There is intrinsic beauty and value in the hand crafted object and I believe that it has the ability to transform our everyday rituals into moments of pause, reflection, and connection. I see the dirt in my pots as sacred and that by honoring it we can find some communion with nature.

Jessica Kreutter

Artist statement:

I am interested in creating moments where worlds flow together. These moments suggest there is something more than what appears to be: a place that is inhabited by both reality and fantasy, a place between remembering and forgetting where beauty and disgust are intertwined.

The porcelain objects in my installations have disrupted borders. I want to capture a form as it changes from a contained, operating organism to something uncontained, fragmented and entwined with nature, animals and objects.

Alison Miller

Artist statement:

I've always been drawn to pottery, but it took many years to be able to try it. I was obsessed from the very first moment on the wheel, eventually putting together my own studio where I share space with a few friends.

For me, my process is about exploring different shapes and colors. Lately, I've started to spotlight the dark clay I'm using and I'm incorporating natural shapes to help that.

Nearly everything I make is designed to be used on a tabletop. I value function.

Emily Rensink

Artist statement:

“Memory” explores moments that shape who I am, from cherished to unpleasant and beyond. These moments of growth are conveyed through sculpted figures that capture a cartoon-like version of myself which is reinforced by the bright blocks of color and use of textiles. The humorous approach to the narratives along with the generalized characters provide an opening to reaching a wider audience. By sharing my experiences, I hope to connect with the viewer on a more personal level. Self-reflection is an essential part of human evolution and individual growth. We can empower ourselves by contemplating our experiences, understanding how and why we embody them, and making conscious choices going forward. Living is about reflection and learning, evolving the person you want to be.
