Megan Mitchell holds a BA in painting and printmaking from Carleton College in Northfield, Minnesota, and an MFA in ceramics from Utah State. She has worked as an apprentice at Whitefish Pottery in Montana and at Hoyman-Browe Studio in California. She completed a yearlong residency at the Red Lodge Clay Center in Montana. In 2014, Megan was the Mellon Teaching Fellow in Ceramics at Marlboro College in Vermont. Her forms are inspired by architecture and furniture, and are altered to imply movement and instability. Through the overlay of pattern, structure, and space, Megan creates work that conveys intimacy, as well as a sense of great distance. Megan is a recipient of a 2015–16 Fogelberg Studio Artist Fellowship at Northern Clay Center.
