    The Jerome Ceramic Artists features the work of 2015 Jerome Project grant recipients Mathew Krousey, David Swenson, Michael Arnold, Karen McPherson and Ginny Sims. The Jerome Project Grant program is intended to support the work of Minnesota ceramic artists at relatively early stages in their careers, as they accomplish short-term, specific objectives.

    Featured Artist Bios:

    Matthew Krousey created work that explored our vanishing natural habitats. The Jerome award has allowed Krousey to expand his imagery, moving his ideas from pottery to large tiles, where his ideas can grow in breadth. www.mkrouseyceramics.com

    David Swenson makes ceramic works through the assemblage of parts and pieces. He used his Jerome award to purchase a 3D printer and software which will allow him to prototype and imagine works before they are fully realized.

    Michael Arnold is a maker of wood-fired, wheel-thrown pottery. He used his Jerome award to research native-Minnesota clays and slip-casting. In addition, he spent his grant year designing and building a wood-fire kiln in Albert Lea, MN. In addition to making pots, Arnold is NCC’s exhibitions manager. www.michaelarnoldceramics.com

    Karen McPherson creates handbuilt vessels for plants. With her award, she looked beyond the usual relationship between plants and ceramics—flowers in a vase—and instead, incorporated plant forms onto the surface of the work itself. www.karenmcphersonclay.com
    After recently receiving her MFA from the University of Minnesota–Twin Cities,Ginny Sims has been teaching ceramics at different centers and schools throughout the Midwest. She used her Jerome award to transfer decorative motifs onto majolica-based surfaces, placed in an installation setting. www.ginnysims.com
