Watershed Center for Ceramic Art | Summer Residency

I had the privilege to be part of the "Nature in Ceramics" Artists-Invite-Artists a week ago and I had my watershed experience. I was able to create a new body of work based on the research that I've been working on for the past months as Artist-In-Residence (AIR) at the Harvard Ceramics Program. These two weeks were crucial to produce the work that will be show case in September as the completion of my first year as  AIR at the Harvard Ceramics Program.
