MISSY STEELE is our 2014-2015 Margie and Tom Pozefsky Fellowship artist. This new fellowship opportunity (created in 2014) provides an artist: a studio, materials/living stipend, mentor and international travel for workshops. Missy completed a BFA in Ceramics from Carlow University in Pittsburgh, PA. Steele's functional ceramics emphasize and celebrate function while providing a canvas for whimsical, humorous and despairingly dark carving based on observed social behavior.
