Abigail Murray: After graduating from Cranbrook Academy of Art in 2005, Abigail Murray spent years exhibiting sculpture and installations and participating in residencies around the world. As time went on, her focus changed and she began using her ideas of sculpture into
functional ceramic objects. She creates simple, utilitarian forms in porcelain through a combination of slip casting and hand building techniques. And mixes found and created textures, playing with light,
and exploring ideas of nature, fragility, function,community and food.In addition to her work as a ceramist, Abigail is a partner with the architectural research group ARCHOLAB
. She is the instigator and co principal of their current project Afterhouse, converting an irreparably fire damaged home into a semi subterranean greenhouse to grow things like olives and pomegranates without the use of additional energy.
