Collection: Micaela Willis

I am a potter, painter, and printmaker. All the clay objects I make whether, sculptural or functional, I call pottery. I received my MFA in ceramics from the University of Massachusetts/Amherst. I have been an Instructor or studio tech at many different studios, academic and community art studios. I am presently the studio tech at Seward Park Clay Studio as well as teaching one class.

One thing I have realized over the years about my work and studio interest is my infatuation with the figure. Or more to the point, images of the head. On my stoneware functional pots I like imagery of the figure. My sculptural work while abstracted is informed by the human head, my love of Bay Area Funk Art and Chicago’s Harry Who artists.
