Introducing the latest work of Massachusetts-based artist Molly Hatch. Colourful, hand-painted, ceramic plate installations, in quite a variety of patterns and scenes.
Born in 1978, Molly Hatch, the daughter of a painter and an organic dairy farmer, her childhood was divided between physical labor, play and creating art. She studied drawing, printmaking and ceramics receiving her BFA at the Museum School in Boston in 2000. After several ceramic residencies and apprenticeships in the US and abroad, she received her MFA in ceramics at the University of Colorado in Boulder in 2008. Her career in ceramics has led to collaborations with institutions such as the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Clark Art Institute, as well as collaborations with design and industry.
Her largest artwork to date, Physic Garden, was installed last year at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, a monumental installation of 475 plates depicting imagery used on Chelsea Factory plates dating back to the 1750s. Hatch is represented by Todd Merrill Studio.
