Maia Homstad (Minneapolis, Minnesota) has been the sales gallery manager of Dock 6 Pottery Gallery since 2013, and has been an active member of the Minneapolis ceramic community for over 20 years. She is inspired by the parameters of function, stating, “To create a form that ‘works for a living’ is immensely satisfying.” Homstad focused her residency on further developing a line of wares informed by a combination of historical Shaker furniture, early American enamel ware, and Scandinavian design.
Emerging Artist Residencies
The Emerging Artist Residency programs—the Fogelberg Studio Fellowship and the Anonymous Artist Studio Fellowship —are designed to provide emerging ceramic artists with an opportunity to be in residence for one year at Northern Clay Center, where they can develop their own work, as well as exchange ideas and knowledge with other ceramic artists. The 2018 recipients of the Fogelberg Studio Fellowship in the exhibition are Maia Homstad and Keather Lindman. The 2018 recipients of the Anonymous Artist Studio Fellowship in the exhibition are Soojin Choi and Peter Ronan.
