UW-Stout Ceramics Prof Featured in National Magazine
Kate Maury's research was highlighted in the September issue of Ceramics Monthly
Local potter and UW-Stout ceramics professor Kate Maury recently traveled to Uttam Nagar, India – a small village just outside of New Delhi – to document local traditional pottery-making methods. “It became more evident that maybe this will vanish within the next two generations … it’s not the most lucrative business,” Maury said. Partially funded by a Professional Development Grant from UW-Stout, Maury’s research was highlighted in the September issue of Ceramics Monthly, a popular art magazine with more than 250,000 subscribers. Maury teaches her ceramics students how to create a “miniature version of the decorative elements featured in that article, then they apply it to the pot.” Maury’s work is featured at both national and international venues, and can be found in numerous contemporary ceramic books and publications.
