Having trouble opening. Looking to other artist in the field to see how they perform this task.

Kate McDowell

We do not want merely to see beauty, though, God knows, even that is bounty enough. “





Justin Novak

“The “21c Bunny” project highlights the pathological and cyclical nature of violet behavior, regardless of how it is justified or sanctioned by religious or political institutions.”





Del Harrow

“My current studio practice consists of two activities: the production/fabrication of objects from a range of materials, and then, a sustained investigation of these objects by way of successive experiments with strategies for placement, arrangement, and organization.”

“There is a space that exists upon the tip-of-the-tongue, a site of profound intrinsic curiosity.”



Christyl Boger

“As an artist I have always been interested in the strange balancing act performed by the human animal; in our ongoing struggle between impulse and control, personal and communal agenda, and the desires of the animal body overlaid by a veneer of cultural constraint.”





Calan Ree

“When I was in elementary school, I entered a Halloween contest that required each participant to dress up as their favorite character from a story.”




Adelaide Paul

“Since the 1940’s, thousands of collies have been bred so that nine transvestite “Lassies” could perpetuate a celluloid myth about a boy and his dog.”





Andrea Keys Connell

“I build my figures hollow, starting with a toe, then moving upwards, forming each section of the body by pressing the clay from the inside outward.”


Cynthia Consentino

“My sculptures utilize the human figure to explore gender, familial and societal roles, religious and cultural mores, and human perception.”



Christina A. West

“I’m most interested in the unexpected and enigmatic, the imperfect, the ineffable or indefinable, which—with enough imagination—allows me to find a potential subject in nearly everyone.”






Louise Hindsgavl

“I work in the field of porcelain figurines. I like to challenge all aspects of them and extend our understanding of what a porcelain figurine is.”



Simona Janisová

“My recent porcelain and ceramic work is based on the intersection between design, applied and fine art. ”


Michaelene Walsh

“If you have eaten ice cream, marveled at a monkey, played with a doll, drawn a heart, or written a secret note on blue lined notebook paper, we have something in common, at least on the surface.”






Jason Walker

“In my ceramic sculpture, I have been exploring American ideas of nature and how technology has changed our perceptions of nature.”


Bryan Czibesz

“Our current understanding of technology is dominated by the thought of clever and alluring consumer gadgets, but the ingenuity and utility of our material progress is also much more fundamental: prosthetic ways of extending our bodies and minds. ”
