Brooke Noble: Ceramic Artist; Artist in Residence at Bluseed Studios
Brooke took her first pottery course in the year 2000 at Syracuse University where she received a Bachelors degree in Art Education; but she had “caught the clay bug,” and it changed the direction of her life. She went on to get a Masters in Fine Arts/ Studio Ceramics at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville. She now has exhibited her work in sixty galleries nation-wide, and her shows often sell out. What she makes is hard to categorize. Two words come to the fore, however: magical and whimsical. Much of her “pottery” is actually functional sculpture.
Brooke made her way to the Saranac Lake area from Chautauqua County. “I’m drawn to the mountains,” she says, “because I like extreme, cold weather.” Her days are filled renovating her house, exhibiting, teaching, making cool stuff, and working at the Caribbean Cowboy restaurant in Lake Placid. She says she would like to teach at the college level.
