Maryalice is a ceramics artist originally from Surf City, New Jersey, currently an MFA candidate at the University of Arkansas. Mary Alice’s work uses clay bodies and textural glazes to explore what happens to the body when it is overwhelmed with feeling. “as a hyper-sensitive person (emotionally and physically), i have become keenly aware of my body’s reaction to stress. my skin starts to feel almost electric and crunchy, like the surface glaze on the lumpy beings.” Her “beings” attempt to create physical representations of invisible sensations.
Maryalice is nostalgic for early aughts fashion. Be on the lookout at Nostalgia for beings with color schemes inspired by juicy couture track suits.
