The residency is a critical component of a ceramic artist’s development into a professional maker. It can take many shapes—from a 2-week adventure to a new environment, working under the deadline of an exhibition; to a multi-month intensive, surrounded by new materials and technologies; to a focused, year-long immersion into a new community and culture of making—and provide endless opportunities for learning, growth, and self-discovery.
Over the past 25+ years, Northern Clay Center has acquired examples of stunning ceramic art from makers across the state, the country, and the world. Each artist was, at some point in their professional career, in residence at the Center — in conjunction with an exhibition, through an emerging artist residency, or enabled by the McKnight Artist Residency for Ceramic Artists. NCC Residential highlights dozens of makers who’ve shared their vision, time, and talents with the Center and its constituents as artists-in-residence.
