Read 2018 Scholarship Award Amber Zuber's report:
FUSION Scholarship Program Recipient Amber Zuber.docx

This ceramic residency was an awesome opportunity for me to gain a greater understanding and a new perspective on not just ceramics, but various materials involved in craft. It was through numerous lectures and the final exhibition in particular where I presented my work and research done during the residency, as I got to meet and interact with an international audience with diverse viewpoints. Being introduced through a local newspaper, and appearing on a radio show was a unique experience, and I got to exchange thoughts and ideas on variety of different subjects, going beyond our different languages. I want to express my sincere gratitude to Fusion, who has awarded me with this fantastic opportunity.
