Britt Thorp
Britton Thorp lives in Austin, Texas where he maintains his studio practice and teaches Ceramics at St. Stephens Episcopal School. He received his MFA (2021) from Syracuse University and BFA (2008) from Ohio University. In between, he was a resident artist at The University of Arkansas and Michigan State University. Britt’s current studio practice includes virtual design, 3D printing, mold making and atmospheric firing. Using a specific geometric language, Britt makes functional forms that allow the viewer a moment to slow down and appreciate the intricacies of life. He says “The handmade objects I craft reside in the background until used, then reveal themselves in our quiet times and communal gatherings. They enhance the simple act of refueling the body and add layer of meaning and pleasure to our daily lives.”
