During the residency I have created a few bodies of work including figurative animal and human forms as well as readymades and found object casts utilizing Kohler’s ceramics facilities. I have incorporate multiples and one of a kind pieces in work in series. The access to the unique facilities and the opportunity to work with Kohler associates provided me with an exceptional experience that has inspired my work.

Residency description The Byrdcliffe Artist in Residence program provides artists of exceptional talent with uninterrupted time and creative space to research and create new work. Lasting four weeks (or a possible eight weeks for ceramic artists), residencies provide artists with private studio space within a community of peers and the serene natural setting of the Byrdcliffe Art Colony.
The Long-Term Residency (September 1 - July 31) is ideal for committed individuals in transition from post baccalaureate studies to graduate school, as well as those pursuing the development of professional artistic careers. Self-directed ceramic artists searching for the time, space and resources needed to explore new ideas and create new work will enjoy the rural mountainous setting.
