Thanks to husband and parents for helping me get settled in this great little warehouse studio last weekend! I'm working on a wide variety of miniature vases right now, getting ready for a big (okay, tiny) firing with some glaze experimentations!

About

Miniaturist and fine artist

BIO

Maddie Gerig Shelly is a ceramic miniaturist and fine artist creating a variety of carefully crafted work from expressionist to realistic. She grew up surrounded by dogs, her three older sisters and orchard trees, all of which continue to influence her and her work.

Gerig Shelly graduated from Goshen College with a B.A. in Fine Art in 2017. She has apprenticed with over six artists across the United States and has received numerous awards for her work including a Maple Scholars Research Grant in which she designed and built her own miniature pottery wheel. Gerig Shelly is also represented in galleries, stores and online venues across the Midwest. Beyond her work as an artist and entrepreneur, she is active in her community serving in a variety of roles such as resident volunteer in an Atlanta Catholic Worker and as preschool art teacher in Ayacucho, Peru. She and her husband Ben currently live and work in Buffalo, NY.

STATEMENT

I am interested in capturing an intimate moment with the viewer: shared seconds of authenticity. Quiet forms, reflective mirror finishes and soft porcelain build the personality of my pieces and demonstrate my own search for authenticity and delight. The intimate scale of my miniatures begs the viewer to come close and relish the moment.

My work is the process of searching for the root of something very human and very tender.
