Alix Knipe is a ceramic artist living in Carbondale, Colorado. Reminiscent of pottery, Knipe’s work falls within the inherent qualities of volume and containment, but steps beyond function and utility. She states that her work “comprises hard lines and soft planes that are geometric and sensual, elegant and animated, architectural and organic. Richly layered surfaces, affected by the volatiles of the kiln, are used to visually enhance and activate spaces.” Recognized for her work both nationally and internationally, in 2011 Knipe received a Fulbright Fellowship Grant to work in Turkey for nine months. Her work can also be found in the publication 500 Vases.
