As many of you know I was selected to be a resident artist at the Kohler Factory in Wisconsin earlier this year. The program is called Arts/Industry and I was selected to work in the factory in my own studio space in the factory along side hard working people casting ceramic sinks,toilets, urinals and hospital ware. I have full access to the factory and all of the facilities, supplies, and expertise available at the factory. My residency began a little over a week ago. I have been making plaster molds of some carvings to create a body of carved work in ceramics. Here’s some images from my trip and my first week here which has been really an amazing experience so far.
Eight months ago I applied and was accepted into the John Michael Kohler Arts/industry program at the Kohler factrory near Sheboygan WI. In the program artists get to create a body of work in the factory using the same space and equipment as the workers use to make Kohler products. I will be working in the Pottery casting some carvings in ceramic and then carving some of the work as it comes out of hue molds. Very exciting!
