Sunshine Cobb, 2012–2013 Lincoln Fellow, 2013–2014 Lilian Fellow
2011, long-term 2012–2014
Sunshine Cobb's functional wares embrace the richness of earthenware. She is hoping to devote herself to exploring new ideas within her work during her residency at the Bray. Sunshine was a summer resident at the Bray in 2011 and returned in 2012 as the Lincoln Fellow. Currently she is the 2013–2014 Lilian Fellow.
Sunshine was born in Vancouver, British Columbia, and grew up in southern California. She received her MFA in ceramics from Utah State University in 2010 and a BA in studio art from California State University at Sacramento in 2004. She has been working in ceramics for over 14 years and focuses her talent on functional ware, embracing the richness of earthenware and currently is exploring the challenge of electrogama (electric firing).
"Through form and surface my goal is to communicate a sense of home and memory but also to evoke that feeling of wanderlust that has informed my own life and visual sensibilities."
