    a couple more sculptures i found by Susannah Israel. She is a very well-known ceramic artist here in California, but also throughout the world. here's some info i found about her:

    California clay artist Susannah Israel’s seminal work is widely shown and appears in private and public collections around the world, such as the American Ceramics Collection, Mint Museum, the Archie Bray Foundation, Mission Clay, and the Toki collection. Israel has received a Virginia A. Groot Foundation grant, an NCECA Resident Scholarship to Archie Bray, and a Distinguished Faculty Service Award for curriculum, among many honors. Recent work with colorful theatrical costumes can be seen in the Yinge Ceramics Museum in Taiwan.

    She is known for her expressive working methods with clay, and for her signature glaze color and texture.

    Susannah Israel has also worked on industrial terracotta, beginning in 1995, at the Gladding, McBean factory in Lincoln, CA.

    Susannah Israel is the only artist from the USA ever to win the Fletcher Challenge Premier Award.

    Susannah Israel

    My work has its source in the fluid nature of experience and the transience of personal history and memory. These gathered images come together like the many variations found in stories of shared experiences. A particular resonance comes from the voices of the beloved dead, who shared these memories and experiences. Hence, though the work is largely elegiac, it also celebrates and honors the living community."
