Bio – 

Courtney Murphy is a studio potter living and working in Missoula, Montana. She studied Ceramics at Oregon College of Art & Craft, graduating in 2004. In 2009 she came to Montana where she completed a two year artist-in-residence at the Archie Bray Foundation for the Ceramic Arts in Helena. She fell in love with Montana, and after a short term residency at Red Lodge Clay Center, and a long term residency at the Clay Studio of Missoula, she decided to settle in Missoula where she recently finished building a home studio.

Her work has been shown nationally and internationally, and has been featured in books and magazines including American Craft, Pottery Making Illustrated, and Ceramics Monthly. In 2011 she was honored to be chosen as an emerging artist by Ceramics Monthly.

Her designs are influenced by folk art, mid-century modern forms and shapes, as well as patterns, textiles and historical pots. www.courtneymurphy.net / @courtneymurphyceramics on ig
