Currier, of Huntingdon, has been a full-time potter for over 10 years. She enjoys atmospheric firings and uses both wood and gas kilns to achieve desired looks on functional and decorative pieces. She is currently developing clay bodies that are responsive to the soda-firing technique. Her work has been published in ceramic magazines and exhibited in national and international shows. Currier earned her bachelor’s degree in art from Eckerd College in St. Petersburg, Florida.
Troy is a teacher, potter and writer. He has led over 230 workshops for potters at colleges, universities and art centers in the U.S. and abroad. His career has taken him to 13 countries, and his work is displayed in many private and public collections, including the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C.; Shigaraki Ceramic Cultural Park in Japan; Auckland Museum of Art in New Zealand; and the Kalamazoo Institute of Art in Kalamazoo, Michigan.
The Pennsylvania Council on the Arts has awarded Troy two Craft Fellowships for his work in ceramics. In 2012, he received the Excellence in Teaching Award from the National Council for Education in Ceramic Arts.
Currier and Troy will discuss their works Sept. 5, 2019, at 5:30 p.m. in Whitaker Hall, Room 214, with a reception immediately following in the gallery.
