Maisie Pritchard’s practice explores the juncture between artistic production and functional design, thereby generating semi-functional sculptural art works. Operating within this grey area, Maisie‘s intention is to produce objects that exist in a social sphere of their own.

Maisie Pritchard (b.1997) lives and works in Manchester. She is based at Paradise Works and was selected for the Manchester School of Art graduate studio bursary in 2019.
