Michael Fraser Bridges of Chicago, IL

“I am a ceramic artist whose work focuses on creating utilitarian objects that take inspiration from adolescent memories of growing up in rural Alabama. Some pieces reference the joys of exploring nature as a child—Owls, Opossums, Frogs etc.—while other imagery is drawn from my love for Horror and Science Fiction films. Both are equally important to me and ultimately create a unique language of intuitively chosen imagery.”

Michael Bridges was born in Alabama in the late 1980s. He grew up playing violin to his pet turtles after school and fishing with his brother on the weekends. He currently resides in Chicago, Illinois where he works as a potter and teacher. He has been featured in a variety of publications from Garden & Gun to Ceramics Monthly.
