About the Work & Artist:
Naomi Peterson creates cute objects that invite consideration beyond the inanimate. She mixes bright colors and soft patterns with hard materials to investigate the emotive potential of functional things. Her influences range from sweets, video games, and fashion–namely ‘dopamine dressing’, to create physical interpretations of and from joy.
Naomi received an MFA in ceramics from the University of North Texas (2021) and her BFA in ceramics from the University of Wyoming (2017). She has been an artist in residence at the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft (2021) and participated in the annual, short-term, Neltje artist-in-residence program in 2018. Currently, she is an instructor at The Glassell School of Art, The Glassell Junior School, and Art League Houston.
