Description: Junior Soe Yu Nwe (“Joy” on campus) took one of the top four student awards at the biennial Michigan Ceramic Art Association Michigan Mud conference held in October 2011.
Soe Yu Nwe’s winning sculpture, “House,” was inspired by a childhood spent on both sides of the border between Thailand and the Union of Myanmar. Many Thai families have “spirit houses,” small structures which are decorated and sometimes furnished for spirits tied to that land. Click on the image below for more information.
