Carly Slade, Visiting Professor of Ceramics
Carly Slade grew up in "Big sky Alberta", Canada. She received her MFA from San Jose State University and her BFA from the Alberta College of Art and Design. Her work is influenced by her blue-collar roots and plagued by a concern for the precarious nature of the working class. Using a mix of materials (most often including clay, embroidery, and building supplies), Slade creates dioramas of real places in an unreal perspective.
