Shadow May is a self-taught, award-winning ceramic artist. He was born and raised in Homer, Alaska, but now calls Chattanooga, Tenn., home. May has received a Tanne Foundation Award, Tennessee Arts Commission Artist Fellowship and Make Work, ArtsMove and CERF grants. May teaches workshops nationally and has been published in Ceramics Monthly and Clay Times. He has exhibited his work across the country in over a hundred juried fine arts shows.
May states, "I work from the perspective that life is fleeting. This belief lends to the urgent and spontaneous nature of both my functional and non-functional work.
"The fundamentals I gained from apprenticeships and production work early in my career have equipped me with a fearless method of creating that I call, 'evolving rapidly.' I wanted to create work that would challenge notions of what clay should be and do. Because of that desire, I feel that my functional and nonfunctional forms are intuitive and uninhibited and emphasize the value of taking risks."
