Ceramist Michael Sherill received a visual arts fellowship from the North Carolina Arts Council in 1992.
In his delicately rendered sculptures, Michael Sherrill seeks to elicit a sense of wonder from viewers, and to make them see the natural world anew through his exquisite works in clay, glass, and metal. This retrospective, organized by The Mint Museum, illustrates the artist’s evolution over his more than 40-year career and highlights his contributions to contemporary art, craft, and design. Sherrill is considered one of the foremost practitioners of using a new approach to traditional methods and incorporating new media and technologies into his work. Sherrill’s exceptional skills and his keen sense of materials together achieve what he calls his “natural narratives.”
