Carly Slade

Carly Slade grew up in "Big Sky Alberta", Canada and spent her early working life in the trades, from carpentry to concrete she is most at home in a shop. Her work is heavily influenced by her childhood spent in a blue-collar home, where work ethic and craftsmanship were highly valued. Using a mixture of materials from ceramics to embroidery, to industrial building supplies, Slade creates dioramas of labor sites. Through a feminine and whimsical lens, her work celebrates the labor and systems that keep our modern world running, while questioning who is allowed into those spaces. Slade received her BFA in Ceramics from the Alberta College of Art and Design (2010) and her MFA in Spatial Arts from San Jose State University (2016). Her work has been exhibited throughout Canada and the United States. Her work is included in the permanent collection at the Archie Bray Foundation for the Ceramic Arts.
