Hand Painted Functional Ceramics by Autumn Higgins

Autumn Higgins is a ceramic artist and an illustrator based in Minneapolis. She was born into a family of artists and it was almost destined that she would pursue the field of art. She studied at the University of Florida and gained degree in Masters of Fine Arts at Louisiana State University in 2011. In 2014, she was awarded the Fogleberg Fellowship at Northern Clay Center.

She specializes in sculpting wheel thrown and hand built functional pieces that she uses as canvas to draw. She paints natural elements, birds and animals, and depicts scenes from her surroundings. The artist uses watercolors to create narrative in each piece, her unique style of sketching and watercolor technique brings the drawings to life. To achieve variation in texture in her pieces, she covers some areas of the pieces with glaze, and leave some of the clay raw.
