Christopher Williams is a visual artist from Fayetteville, Arkansas and is currently pursuing their Master of Fine Arts at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in Ceramics. They earned their BFA in Ceramics from the Kansas City Art Institute in 2019, and finished a two-year Post-Baccalaureate at the University of Arkansas in 2021. Christopher has spent time studying traditional fresco painting and garden architecture in Florence, Italy. They are a story-teller through the twisting of tradition and history and making hand built ceramic vessels giving a voice to objects through theatrical and performative installation. Interested in translation and transformation of objects and personal identity, the pieces are exhibited in various stages of alteration and growth. Hand-drawn animation is often projected over the displays to activate and decorate the installation when the performer is absent.
