ABOUT THE ARTISTS

Kazue Taguchi explores the ethereal and intangible effects of light and reflection. Inspired by stained glass windows in European churches, Taguchi works with reflective materials including glass, mirrors, plastic, and light. Taguchi has been a resident artist at the Corning Museum of Glass, Pilchuck Glass School, Cité Internationale des Arts, the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, the Newark Museum, Vermont Studio Center, and Koganecho Bazaar in Yokohama, Japan. She received an MFA from Virginia Commonwealth University, a BFA at Joshibi University of Art and Design in Japan, and has studied at the Barcelona Glass Foundation.

MAD Artist Fellow Mia Wright-Ross is a leather artisan, designer, educator, and entrepreneur. The leather cording techniques that appear as a signature motif across her luxury lifestyle brand, MWR Collection, also represent Wright-Ross’ design philosophy—each material used is fundamental to the unity and completion of the design. Her handmade bespoke collection includes footwear, accessories, home goods, and furniture. Wright-Ross is the Creative Director and Founder of MWR Collection, and is currently a faculty member at Parsons School of Design. Previously, Wright-Ross was Footwear and Accessories Designer for brands including Tibi, 3.1 Phillip Lim, and Calvin Klein. She received a BFA in Fashion Design from Parsons The New School of Design, and has trained at the Ecco Tannery Holland and Arsutoria Institute in Milan.
