Christopher Reid Flock

Christopher Reid Flock is an experimental ceramic artist whose work builds upon the dichotomy between traditional and contemporary clay techniques, forms, and functionality. After being mentored by Canadian ceramist Kayo O'Young (1997) and studying at Sheridan College School of Ceramic Design (1999), the artist moved to Ibaraki (Japan) where he studied ceramics for nine years. With a deep understanding of the potential of ceramics to foster conversations, the artist incorporates his reflections on the relevance of the creators as cultural and historical commentators. Since his first exhibition in 2007, he received numerous prizes, including the Winifred Shantz Award for Ceramics (2014), and continues to grow his career.
