She has been teaching joyfully in Indianapolis for several years. She teaches from her studio and at Marc Adams School of Woodworking. Her work enlivens both private and public collections.

Project One Studio
Visual Arts: Functional and/or Decorative, Mixed Media, New Media/Technology, Sculpture; Public Art
Project One Studio is a digital design + fabrication studio, founded by Adam Buente and Kyle Perry in 2009. After receiving graduate degrees in architecture, we shifted our direction and began creating work that spans the boundaries of art and architecture. The studio represents our combined view of design and artwork in the physical environment, and a focus on how each project has a specific goal, client, material strategy, or aesthetic quality. We are focused on craft and complexity, and strive to develop unique solutions to every project. We are interested in experimentation, learning new processes, and continually investigating different fabrication techniques and computational tools. Our flexibility and varying skill sets have allowed us to pursue a variety of scales, materials, and project types.

My name is Maxxwel Rance. I am 21 years old studying ceramics at Indiana State University. I make functional wheel thrown pots using a combination of different firing techniques such as wood fire, soda, high fire reduction, and raku to create the desirable effects I try to achieve. Recently I have been focusing on surface texture and design to further accentuate what I am trying to say with my pots. I take inspiration from the combination of flowing organic lines and shapes paired with the hard, sharp edges of geometric shapes and patterns.

I grew up in Columbus, Indiana, a small Midwestern city with a unique architectural landscape. My experience on an indoor playscape I frequented as a child, designed by Cesar Peli in the 1970’s, instilled in me a strong aesthetic sensibility from a young age. His playscape featured green-carpeted hills, bulbous plastic and primary colored forms. Little did I know that as my little body rambunctiously meandered through the space I would one day bring that same playful and open ended attitude into my art making practice.

I am inspired by the memories I associate with my identity, the effects of emotional labor, and the associated stereotypes. I use unique forms of storytelling to share concepts rooted in my own life. Each piece is a reflection of these experiences, and that of others. We can all relate to wearing masks to achieve the accepted standard within our own combination of subgroups. Growing up semi-isolated did not make me exempt from being implanted with habitual patterns, but it did allow time for me to develop an uncommon perspective.

Robinson focuses his studio production around the idea of furniture as a vehicle of expression. He has continually sought ways to make his studio production reflect an interest in functional forms that speak with an artist’s sensibility. The collective work shifts in series that represent different material explorations, form investigations, narrative qualities of art making against the formal vocabulary of design, and then back again to the simplicity of functional objects. Robinson is interested in the relationship the artist and designer both have in shaping an individual’s experience and emotive response to objects of daily ritual.

One often hears musicians describing their childhood as being filled with music and being surrounded by musicians. My story is similar except that I came from a family of makers. While Mom was making clothes and knitting blankets Dad was welding trailers and repairing cars. And all the kids joined in. My parents and grandparents did teach me some basic making skills, but more importantly instilled in me the desire to make things with my hands. Somehow I have always known, even back to my early childhood, that something made with moving parts is better than without.
I have delved into many different hobbies over the years, which has given me a little experience with many different media. Now working full time as an artist, I get to draw on this diverse experience and build with very few limitations

I started drawing at a young age in Canada when my parents were looking at antiques. The stores up there often provided colouring books, but, as fate would have it, they were pretty much used up by the time we came by. So I was often given blank sheets of paper. Due to much moving around, it was hard to maintain friends, and in Canada, where summer lasted a day or two, it was easier to make up friends, draw, and create. When I moved back to the US, we had moved to Florida, where I was socially inept. I did finally make a freind or two, some were just because of Geographical Locations. My comfort and sanity remained in creative expressions. I took a Hyatus with the brith of my daughter as the art world demands much time and attention. Now, as she has grown older, I am venturing out once again.

My life consists of autodidactic learning using books, online tutorials and workshops, driven by the ever-present compulsion to create.
After college (2012) I moved from my parent’s house in New York to Indiana– where I started learning metalsmithing, lapidary and precious metal clay through workshops, books and tutorials online. I am currently focusing on sculptural jewelry and objects using a mixed media approach.
