About Professor Sevigney
I have been teaching in upper education since 1996. I taught for three years as an adjunct faculty at Salve Regina University. I was offered a full time tenure track position at the Community College of Rhode Island in 1999 where I taught until 2008. I left my tenured position and rank of Associate Professor at CCRI to come to Plymouth State University for my present position of Ceramics Program Coordinator.  At the root of my identity as a professor is my identity as a working artist.  To strengthen my teaching practice the importance of using my skills as an artist is essential. The energy, enthusiasm, and technical expertise I employ in my studio helps me demonstrate and teach craftsmanship, creativity, and analytical skills to my students. Because of this I enjoy teaching as much as I love working in my own studio.  Making my work is intrinsically linked to my teaching, and I believe that my work as a ceramic artist and a professor are interdependent and mutually enhanced.
