Erin Younge, Clay Studio Director

Using slip decoration made from North Carolina local slips processed in the clay factory on site at STARworks, Erin's work takes the primarily locally derived clay bodies and pushes them a step further, exploring their decorative properties and possibilities. She also uses various ceramic materials and techniques to build sculptures that explore the relationship between history, religion, and politics. Erin received her BFA in Sculpture from UNC Greensboro, and her MFA in Ceramics from Eastern Carolina University.
