Product Description

Artist: Briony Foy

Artist Profile: My name is Briony Jean Foy and I am a Ceramic and Textile Studio Artist and Teacher.  My work is shown in Higher Fire Studio and Gallery in Madison and River Arts on Water gallery in Prairie du Sac. 

As an educator, I’ve seen how our society’s concern for the safety and comfort of our kids can sometimes lead to too much structure and kids who don’t know how to “play”.  Every community needs a safe, caring environment where children can learn to explore, discover, fail and succeed- where they can learn to play and grow.

I got involved with this project because I know four generations of the family of one of the Museum founders- Katey Kamoku. They are all strong, independent, creative and fiercely dedicated and connected to family and community.

My own work is based on exploration and discovery with one idea leading to another. Developing our senses of Curiosity and Imagination are not only important for a rich inner life, but also help us adapt and contribute to our greater communities. Those two things lead to competence, innovation and self-confidence- they let us learn from the past and dream of the future.
