Wright, Paige

Starting at a young age in an after-school art class in Portland, Oregon, PAIGE WRIGHT discovered an access to play and a fulfillment of purpose through making with the figure in clay. After attending the University of Montana for her Bachelors in Fine Arts in 2006, Paige participated in two Artist-in-Residency programs, the Carbondale Clay Center's long-term program and the Red Lodge Clay Centers yearlong residency. Paige researched portraiture and the avenues of self-perception for her Masters in Fine Arts at Ohio University in Athens, Ohio in 2012. Paige's figurative practice has led her to work in both the International Ceramic Studio in Kecskemet Hungary and Guldagergaard: International Ceramic Research Center in Denmark. Currently, Paige is instructing ceramics courses at the Oregon College of Arts and Crafts while maintaining a personal studio in Portland, Oregon.
