Instructor: Faryn Fee
About your instructor: Faryn Fee received a Bachelor of Fine Art from Paris College of Art in France. Whilst studying she took a year abroad to Brooklyn, New York to focus on ceramics and metaphysics at Pratt Institute. Since graduating she has been in a dedicated independent studio practice developing her visual language. Being that she developed a very tight bond to clay through classical training, her practice is one of breaking the mold of orthodox treatment of clay while involving a culmination of materials such as paper mache, plaster, resins as well as natural materials like algae, moss, mycelium and more. With a deep respect for the ancient medium that is clay, she values very deeply the intuitive nature of the experience of working with it. Which is why as a teacher her specialty and love is developing each person’s unique expressive language with clay.
