Alec Smith, ceramic artist included in The Cup, The Mug

Alec Smith of Detroit, MI

Artist Statement:
“Crafting objects, I seek the balance between one-of-a-kind and the mass produced. Mold systems and simple, clean shapes help bring to life an exquisite functional ware. Though often overlooked amidst our daily routine, I aspire to nurture a connection between user and object, to be present in the moment.”

Alec’s interest in ceramics started in high school and he has been creating with “mud” ever since. He received his Bachelor of Fine Arts from Alfred University. Currently, Alec lives in Detroit working as a clay modeler in the automotive industry and maintains a studio practice at the Glastonbury Collective.
