Statement

Constance McBride’s sculptures explore difficult issues related to aging and mortality.  Inspired by landscapes, her work is most recently characterized by her use of dry surface treatments and her sculpting method to create contorted forms rather than images of perfection. A native of Philadelphia, PA, McBride relocated from the East Coast to the Southwest in 2002 and resides in Phoenix, Arizona. She received a Bachelor of Arts from Arcadia University in Glenside, PA. Her work is featured in the international platform Ceramics Now and the publication Paperclay Art and Practice by Rosette Gault.  Most recently, her work was displayed in the ClayHouston Biennial in TX and in the Clay Studio National in PA. Notably McBride exhibited her work in the 8th Annual Beyond The Brickyard at Archie Bray Foundation for Ceramic Arts in MT. In 2016, McBride received an Emerging Artist Grant from Contemporary Forum; a support organization for the Phoenix Art Museum.
