Over the past few years, Kate Fisher has been surveying, interviewing and documenting a cross section of ceramic artists who are also mothers. In an effort to examine how children, or the circumstances of their lives as they include them, change and impact the work that these artists choose to make and/or how they make it. Her questions have covered studio practice, time management, life balance, home, relationships, child care, and aesthetics. Fisher also asked each interviewee who they view as artist/mother role models. The hope it that this dialogue will continue and additional women will also be part of this project. Future Artist/Mother interviews will be archived under this section.
