"Stepping Up" Art Piece Installed at Tech

CMAB LogoA new piece of artwork "Stepping Up" was installed at Tech by alumna Desi Murphy. The activity was made possible by voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Central MN Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
Murphy is a ceramic artist who has been designing pieces for over 25 years. "I work out of my pottery studio in Central Minnesota. My stoneware and porcelain pieces are contemporary in style, and prioritize clean lines, functionality and a neutral palette. I develop and mix my own glazes, allowing for control over the aesthetic of my work. I believe that the essence of a well-made piece is conveyed through attention to detail and dedication to the process and material."
