Autumn Cipala

Autumn Cipala is a ceramic artist who works from her studio in Thomaston, Maine. Porcelain has long been her preferred medium as she is drawn to its essential qualities of translucency, luminosity, and strength. A balance of clean lines, curves, and volume draw emphasis to the form of each piece. Some are unadorned while others are embellished with patterns that are drawn and carved freehand into the surface of the clay, pierced through the clay, or applied with slip. The quiet beauty of each piece is enhanced with a soft translucent glaze, revealing subtle details. Autumn's most recent body of work is largely influenced by the combination of her many inspirations; the beauty of her surroundings in mid-coast Maine, her experiences as an exchange artist in Morocco, and her personal research as a curious historian of ceramic objects from many cultures. Autumn Cipala holds a BFA from the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University, and an MFA from University of Nebraska-Lincoln. She exhibits her work nationally and internationally.
