Biography

Contemporary ceramicist Jenny Blumenfield is interested in the ways that objects and ideas can fuse to become artifacts. Her vases and vessels, which often resemble female silhouettes, hover between functional and sculptural, craft and art. Her medium and abstract style allow her to explore questions of femininity in a desexualized context. “As my exploration of how female identity is represented in physical forms continues,” she says, “it creates an ongoing critique of the many iterations of female representation throughout art history.”
