Ceramics Resident: Michelle Erickson

Michelle Erickson was Ceramics Resident: World Class Maker at the V&A, July – September 2012
Michelle Erickson is internationally recognized for her mastery of lost ceramic arts during the age of exploration and colonialism. Her contemporary work makes use of these arcane ceramic techniques to create historical narratives about political, social, and environmental issues – both past and present.
