ALICE DREW CERAMICS
Alice’s work marries highly detailed decorative imagery with the organic characteristics of handmade pottery. The surface imagery is comprised of multiple layers screen-printed, and hand painted imagery. The screens are made from her original drawings, and are inspired by interior design, and nature, more specifically the home and garden. Embellished wallpaper, damasks, Ikat fabrics and architectural elements are all harmoniously intermingled with floral and animal motifs into her designs. The surfaces of her work are illustrative by nature, but contain only an implied narrative. Alice Drew is a full time art teacher, studio potter and ceramic product designer who lives in the South End of Boston with her husband and three children. She received a B.A in studio art from Houghton College in 2000 and her M.F.A in ceramics from R.I.T at The School for American Crafts in 2003.
Alice has taught ceramics at RIT, The State College at Brockport, and Houghton College. Alice was also an assistant professor of art at Roberts Wesleyan College from 2006 to 2010.
She and her family relocated from her home city of Rochester, NY to Boston in 2011, where you can find her original works at the Society of Arts and Crafts Gallery shop at 100 Pier 4, Boston, MA; Society for Contemporary Crafts, Pittsburgh, PA; Derby Farm Flowers in East Arlington, Massachusetts; MudFire Gallery in Decatur, Georgia; The MAG gallery in Rochester, NY and Shop1 in Rochester, NY. Alice designed four dinnerware lines for The Lenox company in 2012 and 2013.
