Lucia Thomé is a Philadelphia-based artist who is a recent alum of the University of Pennsylvania and the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. In addition to her solo practice, she is a part of the core team that runs RAIR, a non profit artist residency housed within a construction and demolition recycling center. Lucia has recently shown her own work at the Philadelphia International Airport, PAFA, the Woodmere Art Museum, FJORD and Vox Populi gallery, in addition solo exhibitions at LMNL and Napoleon.
For the CSA, Lucia Thomé will be creating a series of glazed ceramic lions, inspired by the imagery of Edward Hicks and the creatures contained within his sixty-two versions of 'Peaceable Kingdom.' Each slip-cast sculpture in the edition will have a different glazing technique making it unique.
