The "New Voices Lectures" are an ongoing series highlighting some of the most talented emerging artists utilizing the ceramic medium in the field of contemporary art.

Join us to hear from Vanessa Norris about her work and process. 

Vanessa Norris is a ceramic artist who makes functional tableware and often incorporates details visible only upon closer inspection, such as bumps on the lip of a cup or rounded wire protruding from the side of a butter dish. She has moved across the country several times to work for different artists, including production potter Bruce Larrabee in Park City, UT and nationally recognized studio potter Deb Schwartzkopf in Seattle, WA. In addition to assisting and learning from those in her field, Vanessa has instructed courses at MassArt in Boston, Moshier Art Center in Burien, WA, and Indigo Fire in Belmont, MA.

Vanessa graduated from Massachusetts College of Art and Design with a BFA in Ceramics in 2016. She is an Artaxis member, has exhibited her pots in many states across the United States, and has been featured twice in the Exposure section of Ceramics Monthly. She currently lives and works in Boston.

This lecture is free and open to the public. RSVP to to reserve your seat.
