Giselle Hicks will use her time to complete a sculptural investigation of the still life. Using the pinched vessels she will expand the vocabulary of forms, using both iconic vessel shapes as well as abstractions of objects from within the domestic realm and table space. Originally from Southern California, Hicks received her BFA from Syracuse University and her MFA from Alfred University in New York. She has participated in various artist-in-residence programs including the Anderson Ranch Art Center, the Arts/Industry Program at the Kohler Company, The Clay Studio in Philadelphia and The Archie Bray Foundation. Her work has been exhibited at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, The John Michael Kohler Art Center and The Bellevue Art Museum, The Southwest School of Art, The Houston Center for Contemporary Craft, and The Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design. She currently lives in Helena, Montana.
