Grant Program: Craft Innovation Jumpstarter

Round 3 Deadline: November 5, 2023!

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). Generally seen by ceramicists as an industrial “handle maker” or a simple clay shaper, Marsh focuses on the artistic possibilities of the extruder tool and aims to change common perceptions of its functionality and use. GET READY FOR ROUND 3! Deadline: November 5, 2023!
