Using repetitious processes such as feltmaking, papermaking and papier-mâché, Fafnir Adamites engages with and meditates on the concepts such as challenged intuition, personal wayfinding, and transgenerational epigenetic inheritance. During her Studio Grant Residency, she expanded her sculpture practice to study making forms cast with pigmented, handmade paper.
Fafnir holds an MFA degree from the Fiber and Material Studies Department at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and a BA in Photography and Women’s Studies from UMass Amherst. She teaches at Snow Farm: The New England Craft Program, Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts and at The Academy at Charlemont. She lives in Turners Falls, MA.
