Michelle Laxalt earned her MFA in Ceramics as a Welch Fellow at Georgia State University and her BFA from the University of Nevada, Reno. She currently resides in Atlanta, Georgia, and works out of a studio at the Goat Farm Arts Center. Though her practice is rooted in ceramics, she creates sculptures using an array of materials, many of which serve as reminders of the body. She has exhibited nationally in both invitational and juried exhibitions and will be featured in the upcoming 2019 Kent State National Ceramics Invitational in February. She is a 2019 MINT Leap Year Fellow and will conclude her fellowship with a residency at the Hambidge Center in July and a solo exhibition in Atlanta in August. In addition to her studio practice, Michelle is the Gallery Manager and a curator at the Swan Coach House Gallery.
