John Michael Kohler Arts Center

Arts/Industry Residency Program

In the Fall of 2019 I spent 3 months at the Kohler Company factory in Kohler, Wisconsin, as an artist-in-residence in the Pottery. I understood it would be a physically demanding experience, what I didn’t expect was how much this new process of making would impact my understanding of what I create and why.


I am forever grateful to the Kohler Company and John Michael Kohler Arts Center for this amazing opportunity. I hope you enjoy exploring the work I created in my time there.
