Moye Thompson


Ceramist Moye Thompson’s connection to the land — to dirt, mud and clay — comes from growing up in a farm in Alabama. Her cigar boxes and wire bottle series combine seemingly contradictory materials like clay, chicken wire, words and definitions cut from dictionaries, and found objects of all kinds to create playful and surprising sculptures. Thompson attended Harvard University where she studied Art History and worked in places such as Egypt, Washington and New York before moving to her beloved Santa Monica Mountains in Southern California where she finds endless inspiration. Her work has been featured in magazines such as Architectural Digest and Los Angeles Magazine.
