Sunshine Cobb is a Canadian born ceramic artist, originally from Vancouver, British Columbia. Sunshine worked a great many jobs and took a variety of college classes on her quest to find her creative bliss. While searching Sunshine tried many careers until finally discovering ceramics. Sunshine has a BA in Studio Art from California State University at Sacramento, and recently graduated from Utah State University with her MFA in Ceramics.
Sunshine focuses her talent on functional ware, embracing the richness of earthenware and currently is exploring the challenge of electrogama (electric firing). Sunshine relies on texture and colour to create a sense of motion and time in her work. She attempts to depict a sense of age, like one finds apparent in discarded objects, with the aim to infuse feelings of nostalgia and wanderlust in her ceramic works. Sunshine feels her work is at its very best when it is in use by flowers or food, whereby the work comes to life to enhance any encounter.
Sunshine is currently a long term resident at the Archie Bray Foundation.
