Author: Kayla Cropper

Each year, the Windgate Fellowship program receives two nominations from more than 50 colleges and universities across the United States. Out of these 100 nominations, 10 graduating seniors working in a craft medium or process are awarded $15,000. Kat Lee, a graduating senior in ceramics, was one of the few students to receive the award. "Nick Kripal, the head of my department, had asked if I would like to represent one of the two positions," Lee said. "I agreed knowing it was a great opportunity just being selected as one of the two students from Tyler. I was also aware of a past ceramics major that received the Windgate award and decided to give it a shot. There was nothing to lose." Kripal said, "It's been excellent [working with Kat], she's really good, very hardworking. [She] explores a lot of different ideas." Chad Curtis, another of Lee's professors, agrees that she shows a lot of promise with her work. Read More

The colorful installation blends Candy Coated’s silk-screened fabrics and wall decals with costumes that range from a Peter Pan costume flying from the ceiling to nurse costumes on children’s figures surrounded in a room of cats printed on pillows Read More
