Ceramic Instructor and Artist

Artist Alicia Faciane was born on the bayou, just off Bayou Liberty in Slidell, Louisiana. She has worked with clay and taught art in the community for nearly 20 years. She started working with clay in 2002 at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette and received her MFA from the University of Tennessee in Knoxville in 2013. Her artwork includes functional as well as conceptual pieces, often with a humorous approach to deeper concepts like humans' connection to the natural world and how humanity defines “other.” Her next adventure, The Route of it All, includes embracing a nomadic lifestyle with her husband, dog, and cat as they travel across the country in an RV, during which time Alicia will make connections with artist communities and wood fire potters as she explores the life of an artist on the road.
