Your financial contributions will help me to complete 6 new ceramic sculptures as a resident artist at Banff Centre in Alberta, Canada.

An artist in residence award at Banff Centre is an incredible honor and I am enthusiastic about working within such a diverse and creative environment. The residency at Banff is entitled B.A.I.R: Banff Artist in Residence. I will attend Banff Centre from September 15, 2014 to October 25th, 2014. Though this residency is short compared to other residencies, it promises to inform my work by interdisciplinary collaboration and inspiration from the wide array of artists present.

Form & Fire: 6@Banff is a title that refers to the number of pieces that will be produced at Banff Centre. The number six also refers to the number of weeks that I will attend this residency. Because of the time frame and the complexity of my ceramic work, I have decided on this number as it is a manageable expectation for output within the six week time frame.

The works produced at Banff will build upon themes explored in the works produced for my thesis exhibition that took place in April 2014. These pieces include the core ceramic piece, a wooden base, a lighting element, and a colored vitrine or Plexiglas enclosure. The goal is to complete the six ceramic pieces while the remaining components will be fabricated upon my return to the United States.
