Gert Germeraad is a figure sculptor who focuses mainly on human emotion. His pieces have a rough and sculpted look that gives them more life behind their expressions. The blushes of color in different areas create a very realistic effect.

Shay Church’s animal figures usually appear to be very lifeless. However much can be discerned from the hollow eyes of his sculptures that seem to call for empathy. The modeled textures give the bodies a solid and yet sunken feeling.

Bethany Krull’s pieces reference man’s relationship to nature, and delve into the histories of evolution, and the natural world. These silken porcelain forms relate to an unblemished natural world, free from human interference and destruction.

About Ariel Bowman

I grew up in Dallas, Texas where I learned to love nature, animals, and art. I graduated with a BFA in ceramics from the Kansas City Art Institute in 2011. I am currently working towards my MFA in ceramics at the University of Florida. This blog serves as a way for my friends and family, as well as anyone interested in my work, to view not only the finished pieces, but some of the process as well. You can subscribe to this blog to keep up to date on what I am currently working on in the studio, research, new sources, and exhibitions.
