Large-scale Ceramic Sculpture
Michelle Kalman, known for her powerful large-scale ceramic sculptures, will debut two new bodies of work: dramatic charcoal tabletop pieces, and subtle white wall-mounted sculptures in polymer clay on canvas.
Sensuality and organic movement are the heart of Kalman’s very personal abstract work. She boldly explores seductive gestures of flow, elegant lines and fertility through the intimacy of hand-building with clay.

All my work is handbuilt and one-of-a-kind. Handbuilding permits me to enter into a physical, spiritual, emotional relationship with my clay. Yes, the clay and I do speak to each other.
My work is based on organic forms found on the earth, in the sea, and under a microscope. I am fascinated by the universality of these forms, whether plants, fungi, sea corals, shells, fossils, or one celled organisms.
Respecting the fact that Nature has already perfected these structures, I do not attempt to represent them literally. They are the starting point for various interpretations.

“I started out as a painter, then began using shaped canvases, then turned to free-standing sculpture, which is what I have been working with for the past forty years.”
