Sam Briegel

Sam Briegel (Randallstown, MD)

“My work reclaims the identity of clothing textures and patterns. The body and the vessel share a similar vocabulary of lips, shoulders, bellies, and feet. I use this comparison to clothe implied bodies. As functional pottery, these works demand interactions through use. What happens to the clothes that we love but can never wear again? These articles contribute to our identities. As a female potter, I am offering a reclaimed comfort that delivers nourishment, tactile moments, and conversation.”
Sam Briegel grew up in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains in Knoxville, TN. She received her BFA in Three-Dimensional Arts from the University of Tennessee-Knoxville in 2013 where she predominantly focused on ceramics. Sam is a current part-time faculty member at the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, MD and Montgomery College in Rockville, MD.
