Paige Henry

Sculptor

Paige Henry attended Alfred University from 2006-2010 gaining her Undergraduate Degree in Fine Arts with a focus in Sculpture, Printmaking, the Fire Arts, and Metal. Upon graduation Paige attended the 6th International Conference on Contemporary Cast Iron Art in Kidwelly, Wales. Once back in the States, Paige accepted a job as the Technician at Alfred University’s Foundry. During the course of that year she also took on the Wood-Shop Technician position at the University. From the time she left Alfred until now she has attended various iron pours and events with a recent Iron Artist Residency at the Franconia Sculpture Park in Minnesota. Currently, Paige is living in Sugar Hill, NH where she is a self-employed artist and sub-contractor. This summer she will be one of six featured artists participating in ‘Iron.Stone’ which is a large-scale Cast Iron/Stone Carving symposium directly preceding the 7th International Conference on Contemporary Cast Iron Art at the Pedvale Open Air Musuem in Pedvale, Latvia; of which she is the Chair of Documentation for the Conference.

 

A lot of Paige’s work involves family, Americana, and Story telling. In terms of Sculpture, Paige is focusing on functional objects that tell a story and utilize details and textures from her surroundings.

 

“Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out that going to the mountains is going home; that wildness is a necessity; and that mountain parks and reservations are useful not only as fountains of timber and irrigating rivers, but as fountains of life."

-John Muir
