Marissa Childers

Marissa Childers was born and raised in the small town of Florence, Alabama. She attended the University of North Alabama, where she earned her B.F.A. in 2019. Upon graduating she worked as a ceramic intern at Anderson Ranch Arts Center and is now pursuing her M.F.A. at the University of Oklahoma. Her work explores how we share intimate moments with one another through functional handmade objects. Her work is often colorful and covered in a variety of textures. Whether it is influenced by the pattern on her grandparents' curtains or the woven threads of a blanket, each piece is a little reminder of home.
