Alice Drew is inspired by the bold, rich colors and patterns of damask and brocade fabrics, architectural details from Georgian homes, Turkish mosques, Islamic tiles, perching song birds, deer, vines, clipper ships, and bouquets of wild roses. She enjoys making pottery that can beautify one’s home and enrich one’s life.
Alice uses a surface technique that is a modern form of silk-screen printing, called Thermal Screen Printing. The screen prints are made from photocopies of her original drawings. Each piece is hand built using slab construction and is food, dishwasher, and microwave safe.
Alice Drew works as a full time studio potter and lives with her husband and two children in Boston. After she received an M.F.A in ceramics from The School for American Crafts at RIT in 2003, she later taught at Roberts Wesleyan College, RIT, SUNY Brockport, and Houghton College.
