The ceramics program at Tabor Academy will host potter Michelle Grey as this year’s Tomlinson Visiting Artist in Ceramics from Monday, February 25 through Thursday, February 28. Michelle will give practical workshops on pottery design and the ceramic surface in the Braitmayer Art Center during blocks B, C, D, E, G, Monday, Tuesday and Thursday. On Monday evening, February 25 from 6:45 – 7:30 pm, Michelle will present an image illustrated talk about her life as an art potter, exploring the history of her work with clay and sharing the experiences and ideas that are important to her as an artist. This talk will be held in the ceramic studio in the Braitmayer Art Center. An exhibition of her work will be on view in the gallery adjacent to the ceramic studio during her stay on campus. All are welcome to join her workshops with classes and to attend the evening artist talk.
Michelle is a young potter, having graduated in 2017 from Massachusetts College of Art in Boston, earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in ceramics. She worked for a year as post-baccalaureate student in the ceramics program at the University of Massachusetts, and also as a summer resident artist at Tabor alum, Charlie Barmonde’s ceramic art gallery and studio, Arch Ceramics, in Tiverton, Rhode Island. Michelle is currently a resident artist in ceramics at the Worcester Center for the Arts.
Michelle produces functional, artistic ceramics working in porcelain and with the exciting soda-firing process. Her work balances the softness of clay with the hard edge geometric surface design work in glaze and color, producing useful and artistically dynamic handmade vessels of many types. Her beautiful work will be available for purchase.
