Nathan Prouty received a BFA in ceramics and printmaking from the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University, Alfred, NY, and his masters in ceramics from Ohio University, Athens, OH. He has exhibited extensively in solo and group exhibitions throughout the United States, most recently in Fabricated Fictions, The Sculpture Center, Cleveland, OH; Small Treasures, Santa Fe Clay, Santa Fe, NM; and Deuces + Dunces, Lacoste Gallery, Concord, MA. He writes, “Packaged in slick, colorful, concentrated bundles, which nod to the knick-knack and the souvenir, I attempt to both mask and reveal my unease with the world and culture around me from behind a disarming disguise of foolishness.”
