TREATS studio is a shared sculpture studio space occupied by artists Morgan Hill, Annie Evelyn, Jack Mauch, and Shae Bishop in downtown Spruce Pine. These artists met at Penland School of Craft where they forged great friendships and respect for each other’s craft. In 2019, after each making a home in the area, they decided sharing a studio space and equipment would fuel their practices.
These artists offer four distinct styles, and each pushes the boundaries of contemporary craft with original ideas and innovative material exploration. Morgan Hill (website and Instagram) creates sculpture, installations, and wooden jewelry. Annie Evelyn (website and Instagram) uses furniture’s inherent interactive qualities and relationships to the human body to create new and surprising experiences. Jack Mauch (website and Instagram) is a multi-disciplinary artist, designer, and educator. Shae Bishop (website and Instagram) works largely in ceramics crafting garments and sculpture.
Visitors to TREATS studio will see a variety of media from metal to woodworking to ceramics in the form of jewelry, sculpture, furniture, tile work, and more. They will get a chance to get to know these artists and hear what is behind their work. New pieces are being made every day.
Open by appointment.
