Yael Braha was born and raised in Italy in a visually abundant environment that shaped her love for composition, aesthetics, and visual arts. Her multidisciplinary background informs her ceramic artwork today: working at the intersection of craft, art, and multimedia, she creates functional, sculptural and installation work, which is often fired in atmospheric kilns. In 2021 Yael received the Multicultural Fellowship Award from the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts (NCECA). She received her BA from the European Institute of Design and her MFA
from San Francisco State University. https://www.ceramics.yaelbraha.com/

Bo Gilbert is a senior at the University of Wisconsin-Madison earning a degree in art education with a certificate in Theatre and Drama. Growing up in a very small and rural town, they were teaching high school ceramics classes before they even graduated high school. They continued this path of ceramics education through their time in Madison where they taught ceramics workshops at the Chazen Museum of Art, developed two solo exhibitions of their figurative work, and worked as a studio assistant in the UW-Madison ceramics and art metals studios.
