Fellowship Artist November 4 – December 6, 2019

Donna Green is a sculptor, potter and photographer based in New York City. Green’s forms are reminiscent of cast bronze, comprised of the swells and depressions that are more often the purview of metal than clay, and yet her work is distinctly about the evocative manipulation of clay and the fluid nature of glaze. Despite the best descriptors for the forms being words like “bulging” and “gnarled,” Green’s sculptures—handbuilt of stoneware coils that she pinches, scrapes, pokes and punches—are emotive and elegant. Green truly achieves her goal of creating work that finds beauty in the mundane or in ugliness. 

Donna Green is a ceramic artist based in New York City. Trained in industrial design at Sydney College of the Arts in Australia, Green moved to New York to join Industrial Design Magazine as one of its editors. Her work has been exhibited at Greenwich House Pottery in New York, McClain Gallery in Houston and at Utopia Art Sydney. She will continue to develop her forms during her April 22 to May 17, 2019 fellowship.

Our Fellowship and Residency Program fosters an artist’s development by providing time, space and material in the center of the art world. The fellow has access to a private studio space (20’ x 17’) during the Pottery’s regular business hours, free stocked clay and access to gas and electric firings. 

Greenwich House Pottery, a non-profit (501c3) organization, is New York City’s premier ceramic facility. Originally founded in 1909 to teach immigrants a marketable skill in the spirit of the Arts & Crafts Movement, the Pottery is now an arts center for the local and international community that strives to support the history and future of the ceramic arts through its educational facilities, artist residency and gallery.
