Alice Drew

Alice Drew marries highly detailed decorative imagery with the organic characteristics of handmade pottery. Her surface imagery is comprised of multiple screen-printed layers of various colored underglazes. Subject matter includes original drawings, and are inspired by interior design, and nature, more specifically the home and garden. Embellished wallpaper, damask and Ikat fabric patterns and British Georgian architectural elements are all harmoniously intermingled with floral and animal motifs into sophisticated designs. The surface is illustrative and draws the viewer to pick up these pots.

Alice Drew Artist Statement and Biography

This body of work marries highly detailed decorative imagery with the organic characteristics of handmade pottery. The surface imagery is comprised of multiple screen-printed layers of various underglazes. The screens are made from my original drawings, and are inspired by interior design, and nature, more specifically the home and garden. Embellished wallpaper, damask and Ikat fabric patterns and British Georgian architectural elements are all harmoniously intermingled with floral and animal motifs into my designs. The surfaces of my work are illustrative by nature, but contain only an implied narrative.

Clay is rolled into thin slabs, the screen prints are applied in various layers and compositions using colored slips and under glazes. Once the composition is complete, the clay is then assembled into the desired form. My work is then glazed and fired at 2194F, and is food, dishwasher and microwave safe.

Alice Drew is a full time studio potter and ceramic designer living in the South End of Boston with her husband and two children.

She received a B.A in studio art from Houghton College in 2000 and her M.F.A in ceramics from R.I.T at The School for American Crafts in 2003. Alice has taught ceramics at RIT, The State College at Brockport, and Houghton College. Alice was also an assistant professor of art at Roberts Wesleyan College from 2006 to 2010. She and her family relocated to Boston in 2011, where you can find her original works at the Society of Arts and Crafts Gallery shop on Newbury Street and Derby Farm Flowers in Arlington, Massachusetts. Alice's recent dinnerware line by Lenox is available at Macy's and Lenox.
