Nathan Prouty received a BFA from the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University, and an MFA from Ohio University. He has worked in various capacities at galleries in Boston and Philadelphia, as a miniature model-maker for film, and as a teacher of drawing, ceramics and sculpture. Widely exhibited nationally and abroad, Prouty works in ceramics and mixed media, using glitter, glaze, resin, and anything else that fits the bill. His research revolves around the history and baggage of craft and popular culture, while exploring ideas about the American Dream and its associated victory culture, angst, mementos, memories and our collective longing for -and self-sabotaging of- progress. Prouty is represented by The Lacoste Gallery in Concord, Massachusetts. He lives in Union, Oregon with his partner and five mammals where he is Assistant Professor of Ceramics + 3D Studies at Eastern Oregon University.
