Guest Artist Jen Woodin Gives Lecture and Student Critiques
Jen Woodin, who recieved her MFA in Ceramics from the University of Oregon and her undergraduate degree in engineering from Cal State University, Chico, came to KCAI in February and gave an informative talk about her work. She was also available to give critiques to interested students in the ceramic department. Woodin recently received a six-month artist-in-residence award from the International Ceramic Research Center in Skaelskor, Denmark. She is currently teaching at Emily Carr University of Art and Design in Vancouver and is the artist/designer in residence there for school year 2008-09. Her current works explore the empathic connection between the vocabulary of industrial plumbing and human anatomy through the use of mass-produced porcelain objects.
