Christopher Reid Flock began a ceramic mentorship with Canadian ceramist Kayo O'Young in 1997, followed by ceramic studies at Sheridan College School of Ceramic Design. 1999 Flock moved to Japan, initiating a self-guided cultural and studio emersion. Returning to Canada in 2009, Flock unpacked the ten years of study through numerous community activities and national and international exhibitions.
2014 Flock initiated a world first with Siemens Canada and Mohawk College in CT, scanning a 6000BCE Jomon-yaki vessel. Employing traditional clay processes with rapid prototyping, he questioned the process and cultural engagement from a colonial perspective with historical clay artifacts as institutional playthings.
A short-listed candidate for the permanent outdoor ceramic sculpture Gardiner Museum, Recipient of the 2014 Winifred Shantz Award for Ceramics, the 2015 Founders Award at the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition, through the support of three Canada Council for the Arts grants, and an MFA in 2022, Flock continues to push the clay envelope.
His work can be found in international private collections, the Canadian Embassy in Paris, France; the permanent collection at the Yingge Ceramics Museum, Taiwan; the Residence of the Prime Minister of Canada, the Permanent collection at the Clay and Glass Gallery Waterloo, Canada, and the Art Gallery of Burlington, Burlington, Canada.
