ARTIST STATEMENT

Michelle is a Vancouver based multi-disciplinary artist and designer currently working with clay as her primary medium. Mainly working in porcelain and stoneware, her ceramics are minimal in form and often left unglazed to allow ash, smoke/carbon, salt or other organic materials from the firing process add color and texture to the pieces she creates. Using these specific firing methods allows for an unpredictable alchemy between earth, artist and fire acting together to create each piece’s unique personality. Her work invites us to celebrate the element of chance, accepting and embracing that which we cannot completely control.

About MICHELLE GRIMM

Michelle Grimm is a multi-disciplinary artist and designer currently working with clay as her primary medium. For the past year, she has been exploring atmospheric firing techniques like raku, smoke, pit, soda and wood firing. The dichotomy of modern forms with the often-primitive firing methods results in one-of-a-kind objects.

Previous to opening her ceramics studio, Michelle spent 7 years in the fashion industry in NYC then relocated to Sydney Australia where she worked in the field of commercial interiors and spatial design while maintaining a private ceramics and arts practice. Her design work focused heavily on concept development for art based interior experiences while exploring materiality and how it can be used in different contexts or unique processes to alter its outcome. This has proved to be an ongoing interrogation and is evident in the work she creates today with clay.

Michelle was born just outside of Washington DC and lived in New York City and Sydney, Australia prior to making Vancouver, BC her home base. She studied both residential and commercial interior design and is primarily a self-taught ceramic artist.
