Making pottery for an exhibition during my artists residency.

Siriporn Falcon-Grey

Living in Las Vegas, Nevada (1999), and inspired by the unique cultural diversity, I immersed myself in a variety of art courses that included drawing, stone and metal sculpting, and ceramics. Of all these mediums, I have always been drawn to ceramics the most. Enjoying the sense of creativity that comes from manipulating clay with my hands, I consider my artistic style to be loose and somewhat wabi-sabi. Integrating thrown forms with hand-built techniques for a more natural aesthetic, my ideas are drawn from indigenous pottery and diverse cultures. Preferring not to be stagnant with my ceramics, one day itโ€™s cups and the next day itโ€™s sculptures. I believe that one can benefit from art when tactility and function comes into play.

I became a member of the Auckland Studio Potters Society (ASP) in 2011, studying under a variety of prominent New Zealand potters as well as internationally. In November 2019, I became an Otago Polytechnic Alumna receiving a Diploma in Arts and Design Ceramics. From 2019 to 2020, I was an ASP Committee trustee as well as the Social Media Manager, but later resigned to focus on my ASP Artist Residency. Currently I spend my time preparing for exhibitions and teaching pottery workshops.
