Join us for a conversation with Katie Hudnall, our Home as Self second place prizewinner! We’ll talk with Katie about her piece in the show, CHAIRchair, about which she says, “On its surface the movement of the tiny chair coming out of the drawer in the full-scale one is silly, and sweet, but I was thinking about what it meant to spend time with myself alone.” We’ll hear about how the world around her inspires the interactive, playful work she creates and what inspiration she finds in the Esherick Studio.
Katie Hudnall received her BFA in Sculpture from the Corcoran College of Art & Design and her MFA from Virginia Commonwealth University in Furniture Design/Woodworking. Her work has been included in many publications and exhibitions including Crafting A Continuum: Rethinking Contemporary Craft and Making A Seat at the Table: Women Transform Woodworking. Hudnall lives in Madison, Wisconsin, where she runs the Woodworking and Furniture Program at the University of Madison, Wisconsin. When she’s not teaching she spends her time making tools for problems both real and imagined.
