Artist-in-Residence · Instructor
Rachel K. Garceau is a studio artist currently living and working in Atlanta, GA, and has been recognized as a 2015 Emerging Artist by the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts.
After receiving her B.A. in Fine Arts from Franklin Pierce College (NH) in 2003, Rachel K. Garceau continued her ceramic education through studio assistantships, workshops, and residencies at various studios, schools, and museums including Haystack Mountain School of Crafts (ME) and Vendsyssel Kuntsmuseum (DK).
Rachel completed the Core Fellowship at Penland School of Crafts (NC) in 2013 where she engaged in a two-year material exploration, shifting her focus from clay to include metal, paper, and fiber. As a 2013–2014 Artist-in-Residence at Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts (TN), Rachel returned to ceramics through mold making and slip casting. Utilizing these processes, she produces series of large porcelain forms and then introduces them to found environments, inviting others to experience these altered spaces.
