Ceramics Spotlight: Faculty & Graduate Students
Jessica Kreutter’s (MFA 2010) work has been selected for inclusion in this year’s NCECA Project Space to be held in conjunction with the annual meeting of the National Council for Ceramic Arts, Houston, TX, March, 2013. Five individuals/groups are selected annually and given a space in which to create a temporary on-site performance/installation.
Jessica will be creating a still-life of a domestic scene: a kitchen table and relating objects, all covered in thin, wet clay slabs patterned in Victorian designs. As the clay dries, it will crack and fall away, revealing the objects beneath. The scene juxtaposes the labor of covering the space and the decay of that labor.
Tara Wilson’s (BFA 2000) was recently featured in the Helena Independent Record, Helena, MT. In the article, Tara Wilson’s Art Shaped By Nature, Earth and Fire, Tara discusses why she is drawn to the wood firing process, a process which she first began here the University of Tennessee. “You never know what’s going to happen,” Wilson said. “Wood firing keeps you humble.” To read the full article, click here.
