Brian Molanphy’s attention to flux, endurance, transgression and history informs his ceramics. In addition to national venues such as the New Mexico Museum of Art and the San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts, exhibitions include international venues in Canada, Korea, China and several European countries.
After receiving a fellowship and an M.F.A. in Ceramics from Pennsylvania State University, Molanphy was awarded a Fulbright grant to study at the National Manufactory of Sèvres, France in 2006. The Camargo Foundation and the Brown Foundation awarded him fellowships for study in France in 2010. Molanphy is an elected member of the International Academy of Ceramics.
Previously, Molanphy taught at Colorado College, Pennsylvania State University and the Alberta College of Art and Design. He moved from Marseille to join Meadows in fall 2011. In 2012 he was awarded a Meadows Summer Fellowship and a University Research Council grant for research on marbled clay. In 2014 he was awarded another University Research Council grant to continue study in Provence while on research leave for the 2014-15 academic year.
