Hayden Allison Richér
Born in Columbus, Ohio in 1992, Hayden Richer is a Ceramic Artist currently based in Detroit, Michigan. After earning her BFA in Crafts with a focus in Ceramics from the College for Creative Studies and her MFA in Ceramics from Cranbrook Academy of Art, Richer’s works focus on the mundane and monotonous builds of weight and weathering and their sculptural convergence into furniture.
Emphasizing opposing ideas of gradual growth and weathering, Richer’s works often present a slow storyline along an almost tectonically scaled timeline -one of quiet, humble, and earnest growth. Methods of stacking convey the timeline of their build and development that have been calcified in a moment as land-like markers in a domestic landscape.
