Olivia Bain grew up in rural Minnesota on a hobby farm with endless opportunities for exploration and imagination. This freedom as a child has carried over into her life’s passion as she continues to be inspired by her curiosity and surroundings. Bain is a graduate from Minnesota State University Moorhead, where she studied ceramics and sculpture. A prolific, emerging artist, Bain was recently awarded a solo exhibition at Rourke Art Museum where she exhibited a new body of work.
“Banana Bouquet is a playful piece where I was pushing my understanding of clay to make a tall vessel. The hand sewn bananas were made in response to the drawings on the side of the vase.”
