Caroline EarleyAssistant Professor Ceramics

MFA University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee
BFA Ohio University, summa cum laude

Caroline Earley has recently returned to the United States after a period of working and teaching in New Zealand. Her practice is grounded in the vessel tradition and incorporates hand, wheel and industrial approaches. She makes individual sculptural and functional pieces as well as installation works, which draw on her interests in science, politics and cultural issues. Her work emphasizes, and sometimes reverses, the relationship between form and function through the shifting interplay of form, appendage and surface. Caroline was awarded the Australian National University award by juror Janet DeBoos at the Waiclay National Ceramics Exhibition in 2008.

The Objective Art Awards, 2009 Manukau Festival of the Arts, New Zealand
Autopoios, Object Space Window, Auckland, New Zealand
