About the Artist: Maxime Jean Lefebvre was born and raised in France. He moved to America to pursue his MFA in Printmaking at RISD. Maxime is inspired by history and systems of power, and by his experience as a foreigner in America. Through his current body of ceramic work, he is exploring relationships between commerce, systemization and the everyday familiar. Maxime is currently a resident artist at The Steel Yard, our neighbors across the river from the WaterFire Arts Center.
