Meet Caitlyn Marsh, Round 2 of the Craft Innovation Grant Program recipient. She has used her grant to innovate and elevate a ceramic tool overlooked in pottery studios – the extruder – focusing on creating new sculptural forms that push the typical boundaries of hollow forms (r., courtesy the artist).

GET READY FOR ROUND 3! Deadline: November 5, 2023!
