Reaching for Balance

Ceramic

9"

Artist Statment: 

While the Stay-In-Place order has made me feel relieved and safer from the plague, it has been a struggle to handle the extra stress. In this 9” tall ceramic sculpture, “Reaching for Balance”, I have made a slab figure that can rock in place. The posture of the female figure seems blown by great challenges, as she focuses on reaching to keep her balance, representing her inner feelings of surviving turmoil. 

Bio:

In Ceramics, I enjoy the challenge of making decorative vessels that can function, and in creating sculptures. While much of my work has been non-representational, I also work with representational styles. I have exhibited and sold ceramics from my teenage years to the present, in Fine Arts and Crafts Fairs, Galleries and National Juried Art Exhibitions. After earning my MFA in Ceramics from Kent State University, I began teaching at the Beck Center for the Creative Arts, area Community Colleges and the Case Western Reserve University Studio Art program.
