Visiting Artist Lecture - Candice Ring
Wednesday, May 19 | 12:00 noon
Candice Ring’s visit is sponsored by the Ceramics Club.
There is no cost to attend the lecture – everyone is welcome.
“My passion for creating ceramic vessels stems from my reﬂection of the historical context from which they were inspired and the likeness of the imprint that they leave today. My pieces serve as a tool to initiate an experience of use, as a visual and functional language to connect with the user.”
Candice Ring received her BFA in Ceramics from the University of Manitoba, where she worked in a technical capacity for three years following graduation. Having sought out new and interesting opportunities, Candice accepted a position at Red Deer College in Red Deer, Alberta and worked in the ceramics department while maintaining her studio practice. She has exhibited nationally and internationally and has participated in residencies in Australia, the United States and Canada and has taught several workshops in Alberta and Manitoba.
