Arkansas native, Maryclaire Ferguson, discovered a love of ceramics during a Fifth Street Studio class in 2020. She is known for her surface decoration, with an emphasis on carving and freehand painting. Her work often includes floral and animal themes, inspired by folk art and children’s book illustrations. Ferguson joined the Fifth Street Studio team in 2023 as a tech, and more recently as an instructor. Her favorite part of working for a community studio is watching new students and members find their unique artistic voice.
