UW–Madison Art Dept. | Fall 2021 Art Faculty Colloquium: Prof. Katie Hudnall

September 16 @ 5:00 pm - 6:15 pm

Katie Hudnall is a woodworker, furniture maker, sculptor, and illustrator whose art practice is built on a curiosity with woodworking processes that spans from traditional carpentry techniques to more sculptural ones. Assembled intuitively from salvaged materials, her pieces feel both carefully crafted and cobbled together—their surfaces exposing and mapping the relationship between the processes and materials used and the finished forms produced. Hudnall’s works range from fully functional furniture and lighting to “furnitural” objects that use recognizable furniture aspects to engage with the viewer on a conceptual level.
Hudnall received her BFA from the Corcoran College of Art & Design and her MFA from Virginia Commonwealth University in Furniture Design/Woodworking. Hudnall lives in Madison, Wisconsin, where she runs the Wood Program at the University of Madison, Wisconsin. When she’s not teaching she spends most of her time making tools for problems both real and imagined. katiehudnall.com
