Michelle is from Glasgow.
Michelle Young-Hares is a ceramic artist who lives and works in Glasgow, Scotland, UK. She attended Edinburgh College of Art where she graduated with BA(Hons) Ceramics and returned to complete Postgraduate studies.
Residencies in Hungary and France.
She describes herself as classically mid-career and her work has now achieved a high level of technique and skill which has gained an international following and reputation. Her thirst for knowledge in the ceramic realm is almost inexhaustible and since early residencies in Hungary and France, her practice has grown to include teaching workshops, master-classes throughout the UK and weekly pottery classes from her Glasgow studio. A busy schedule of exhibitions and pottery fairs inspires and fulfills her creative desire.
Michelle believes in the sharing of ideas.
As an artist where teaching is embedded within her current practice and believes the sharing of ideas is integral to the ceramic community, Michelle is looking forward to sharing her ideas, processes and techniques within a dynamic group of potters and to explore her response to the unfamiliar. Currently limited to electric oxidised firing she’s keen to learn more about alternative methods of firing. Perhaps we can welcome her in one of our Gas or Soda firing workshops! We are eager for Michelle to deliver an exciting program of workshops and master-classes through our Summer School during her residency.
