MICHAEL NEWSOME CERAMICS
As a child growing up in an Italian American household, I was constantly surrounded by and fascinated by food. During that time if I was not in the kitchen, I could be found drawing or creating something. After graduating college with a BFA in photography, I then worked in the restaurant industry for the following ten years. I chose to move to Portland to attend the Oregon College of Art and Craft where I earned my Post Baccalaureate Certificate. In ceramics I have found a medium where all my worlds converge. It is my aim to create soulful and functional wares that feel great to use while being beautiful to look at.
Feel free to contact me during this event. I'm happy to answer any questions about my artwork.
