Greg Payce often uses historic ceramics as starting points for works (such as Italian albarelli, pre-revolutionary Sevres garnitures and Miessen figurines). He has been making ceramics for over 35 years. He produced a large-scale bronze commission for the Calgary International Airport; a major ceramic installation work was recently installed in the new Canadian embassy in Seoul, Korea; and he has recently collaborated with composers and photographers to produce videos, which animate the negative spaces between his ceramic forms. Payce is currently the Head of Ceramics at the Alberta College of Art and Design.
