S1E23 : Evee Erb on Weaving in the world of craft, mistakes, advice & More!

This week we will be talking with Evee Erb from North Carolina. Erb is a nationally award-winning American Artist who graduated from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2016 with a BFA in Ceramics. During her time at MICA she also studied illustration and textile design. After studying ceramic sculpture in Florence, Italy, and receiving her degree, she returned to her hometown in Durham, North Caroling, where she has worked at the North Carolina Museum of Art, taught workshops at a variety of art centers, served on curatorial jury panels, and given lessons and art talks at various institutions. 

Through her work, she studies the figure through a contemporary lens, focusing on human connection and mortality. Her interdisciplinary work explores the impact of anxiety and trauma on identity and gender expression. Finding herself constantly aware of the connections between memory, body and media, she presents the human form examining the dissonance between the psyche and external patriarchal culture. The pliable connections between the physical and psychological are illustrated by the intimacy between the figure and its surroundings. Her resulting work, showing the explorations between mind, body, and healing, evoke personal narratives in psychologically charged environments, questions the impact of gender and identity on our perception of subjective reality. 

We hope you enjoy our conversation as we talk about weaving’s place in the craft world, making mistakes, advice, and more.

  1. Eric and Tegan,

    Your podcasts and the work that you do continue to be a source of inspiration and hope in this crazy world that we live in. Covid has knocked us all for a loop, and you seem to be channeling your creativity into other areas to the benefit of the weaving community. You are showing us what a wonderful community it is. I love what you are doing with the mill and whenever this all ends and, whenever they open the Canada/US border, would love to visit.

    Thanks so much and stay safe
    Susan
