Ceramic Studio

Janet Macpherson

Macpherson casts ceramic forms of toy animals and reassembles them in unusual ways; placing objects that are familiar and strange in new and alien contexts.  Sunk into amorphous structures, grafted onto forms these manipulated and fragmented creatures cling perilously to the wall. Macpherson graduated from York University with a BA philosophy; Sheridan Institute: Crafts and Design, Ceramics; and The Ohio State University with an MFA in Ceramics. She was accepted into Harbourfront Centre’s artist-in-residency programme and awarded a scholarship in 2011.
