Brooke Noble

Brooke Noble’s ceramics play with imagery that references childhood, home, birds and independent winged women. She habitually references the house as a metaphor, considering ideas surrounding the comforts of home, activities within the domestic realm and the significant distinctions between the interior and the exterior of this particular structure. Her use of soft pillow imagery for wallhangings serves to highlight the accoutrements of home while the modern design and unconventional fabrication speak to a contemporary sensibility.

Brooke Noble Artist Statement

I enjoy making objects that can rescue one from the monotony of everyday activity. As I pay homage to the ordinary, I embrace the subtleties, simple as well as specific. My intention is to be a catalyst, allowing people to become engaged with the objects and aware of the moment.

I habitually reference the house as a metaphor, considering ideas surrounding the comforts of home, activities within the domestic realm and the significant distinctions between the interior and the exterior of this particular structure.

I am also motivated by the sense of naïveté and the sensations of wonder and discovery that come with my impression of what childhood was, is and should be.

My work is a culmination of traditional craft methods, industrial processes, modern design and unconventional fabrication in attempt to be a part of a contemporary conversation.
