ANN FERGUSON, ceramics
2018 Artist in Residence


For me, working in clay started in college and has been a life long process. I am interested in pottery that is beautiful and yet has meaning in our daily lives through use and function. I find utilitarian ceramics is the best method to express my ideas because pottery is naturally rich in ideas and history through out many civilizations. I am interested in studying the ceramic designs and decorations from ancient cultures in order to develop new ideas by remaking historical forms and surface motifs.
